COULD THE ANSWER BE 400

MATH  Ms. Sue, Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 7:50pm
Nope.
What pattern do you see?

MATH  MELISSA, Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 7:56pm
I SEE 4 THEN IT SEEMS LIKE THEY ADDED A 0 TO THE NEXT 4TO MAKE 40 SO MAYBE IF I ADD ANOTHER 0 IT WOULD BE 400

MATH  Ms. Sue, Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 8:03pm
Here's the pattern I see 
(4 * 3) + 1 = 13
(13 * 3) + 1 = 40
Continue this pattern.

THE ANSWER IS 364
