x 2 + 2 - 1 is the repeating sequence 1 x 2 = 2 2 + 2 = 4 4 - 1 = 3 3 x 2 = 6 6 + 2 = 8 8 - 1 = 7 7 x 2 = 14 14 + 2 = 16 16 - 1 = 15 the next number is 15

The next number is 16. Counting forward from the first 1 - every other number is an increment of 1. From the second 1 - every other number is the square of the number it follows. Therefore the next number is 16, then 5, then 25, then 6... and so on...
