42 is the next number in this sequence. This number sequence is adding the next prime number to the last number. So 1 + 2 = 3. Then 3 + 3 = 6, 6 + 5 = 11, 11 + 7 = 18, 18 + 11 = 29. The next prime number after 11 is 13, so 29 + 13 = 42. The next numbers would be 59 (42+17), 78 (59+19), and 101 (78+23)

17?

These are all prime numbers. The next one is 17

The nest number in the sequence is 18. Note that the difference between each number and the next number in the sequence follows the simple sequence of 1,2,3,4. Obviously the next in the sequence of increases is 5, so 13+5=18.

17, it's the sequence of primes.
