The challenge problem of the week in 6th grade math is a letter number sequence.
J 1 F 8 M 1 A 0 M 1 J 0 J 1 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
They are to find the next 10 letters and numbers in the line. They were given a hint : look at the letter sequence by themselves and you should recognize it.
Does it just repeat starting with the F 8 M 1 etc.?
Thank you for your help.

Hope,

Hint: Next year (in 2008), the sequence will change to

J 1 F 9 M 1 A 0 M 1 J 0 J 1 ...
