Brain Teaser 8

Brain Teaser 7 was an easy one.

Alot of you answered correctly. Friends who answered correctly:
1- Mr. Anonymous who still havent reveal his identity
2- Naagai Siva
3- C.M. Haniff

As I told earlier, friends who answered correctly in my Y! messenger will not be included in this list. Congrats for those guessed correctly & those who couldnt, please keep trying.. :-)

As far as I know and tried, there is only one answer which is 194. If you know any other number, please post it also. Thank you!

Ok. Today's teaser is:

What row of numbers comes next?

1
11
21
1211
111221
312211
13112221

Since this is also an mathematical question, I hope alot of you can guess the right answer.. :-)

The next row is: 1113213211
followed by: 31131211131221

Explanation:
Each row is derived from the previous numbers where the first digit represents quantity and the second digit is the number itself.

Starting at 1
The next says there is One 1
11
Now there are Two 1
21
Now there is One 2 and One 1
1211
and so on....

I think my comment on the previous Brain Teaser 7 was not noticed. So I'm posting here.

Very simple math.
100 10 1 (Position)
8-y 5+z z
If z=0
8-5=3 5+0=5 0

So, 350 and -261 are the numbers that satisfy your given conditions other than 194.
