assuming you mis-typed the 15 and instead it should be a 25, these are simply the squares of the number's position in the line.

12 = 1

22 = 2

32 = 9

42 = 16

52 = 25 (assume is what you meant)

62 = 36

You can also think of it as adding on the next in a series of odd numbers

1+3 = 4

4+5 = 9

9+7 = 16

which results from expanding (x+1)2 - x2 anyway

To guess a rule for a pattern, you need several numbers, not just one. Of course, you can invent any rule, for example, "all numbers in the sequence are equal to -4", or some more complicated rule.

A single number, such as 24102882, does not establish a pattern!

An exception does not obey a rule or pattern. Often, the only way to identify an exception is to know the rule or pattern that should be expected.

there is no rule i think my teacher said its about the pattern

A single number, such as 24102882, does not establish a pattern!

The rule for the pattern is y=x+2. That rule is in the table format in which it would originally be in, but the worded rule would be 'It increases by 2 each time'.

The rule is multiply the previous term by -1 to find the next term.

A pattern that not only continue the pattern but find the value for the given term in the pattern.

One number, such as 2511234795, does not make a pattern.
