So you're adding 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 etc 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49

consecutive square numbers

the next number in the sequence is 25............starting at the beginning, you add the odd numbers to the existing number to get the answer. Add "1" to 0, get 1; add "3" to 1, get 4; add "5" to 4, get 9; add "7" to 9 to get 16........and add "9" to 16 to get 25.........

1, 4, 9, 16, ......., (n squared),

16 + 9 + 4 + 1

9/16 + 1/4 = 9/16 + 4/16 = 13/16.

Writing it as: 1, 4, 9, 1 6, 2 5, 3 6, 4 9, 6 4, 8 1, ... Should help you spot it is the digits of the square numbers written out in order.

no it is not a recursive pattern because it isn't equal numbers.

the next number in the sequence is 25............starting at the beginning, you add the odd numbers to the existing number to get the answer. Add "1" to 0, get 1; add "3" to 1, get 4; add "5" to 4, get 9; add "7" to 9 to get 16........and add "9" to 16 to get 25.........
