Hi,

I need some help solving this number sequence. I'm sure it's very simple, but for some reason I don't see the answers to the missing two numbers

Here's the Sequence:

1, 2, 3, 5, ?, 13, 21, ?

The answer is either:

a) 11 & 24
b) 8 & 45
c) 8 & 34
d) 11 & 34
e) 9 & 45

Much appreciated. Thanks!

It looks like a fibonacci sequence ie, Fn+1=Fn+Fn-1 so the first one is 3+5=8 and the second is 13+21=34
