    Pattern

    So I have come across a strange pattern lately, I am usually good at maths, after sitting 30 minutes at it I couldn't figure out how to find the nth term. I am sure there is a pattern to it. The online pattern finder doesn't seem to work.

    If no one gets it I will post some pics of this pattern. It will be easier when you visualize it. But it kind of multiplies from the one before and adds some number. I know I could figure it out eventually but I am too lazy. I dont upload the pic because if someone can get it without them it would be a waste of time(lazy)
    1. 1
    2. 4
    3. 11
    4. 26
    5. 58
    6. 124

    Online finders seem to have it working until I put the 6th sequence in. I tripple checked twice and i didn't mess up anywhere :P
    Good luck!

    If I post a couple guesses would you be able to confirm/deny them?

    (I guess 193)

    I thought I had it, but it only came close. Maybe it is related?

    1*2+2=4
    4*2+3=11
    11*2+4=26...etc

    Karl, there certainly is a pattern when looking at it this way, but it's not 100% certain....

    1*2+2=4
    4*2+3=11
    11*2+4=26
    26*2+6=58
    58*2+8=124
    124*2+11=259

    When looking at the start, you see there's a jump of 1, twice. After that, there's a jump of 2, twice. My guess is that it would follow with 2 jumps of 3. But this pattern doesn't feel right... It's too hidden... Would then continue as

    259*2+14=532
    532*2+18=1082
    1082*2+22=2186

    But it still doesn't feel right... I'll think on it for a while:P

    1 4 11 26 58 124
    3 7 15 32 66 (differences)

    3*2+1=7
    7*2+1=15
    15*2+2=32
    32*2+2=66
    66*2+3(grasping at pattern?)=131

    124+131=255?

    This is what I was thinking, hence why I only posted the first part. Hopefully we will get some indication on if this is in the right direction or not.
