Everytime you move to the next number you add 1, then 2, then 3, etc.

1+1=2

2+2=4

4+3=7

7+4=11

11+5=16

16+6=22

22+7=29

29+8=37

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'.

multiply by three

Times one, doubled, times one, doubled...

There are actually more than a pattern rule for that type of sequence. The pattern rule is not obvious. The sequence is actually this: an = 5a(n - 2) for n > 2, such that the seed values are a1 = 1 and a2 = 5. Another pattern rule is the number of palindromes using a maximum of five different symbols. The third one is the Inverse Binomial Mean transformation of the Fibonacci sequence.

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.

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.

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.
