The only pattern I see is 7*2=14 and 14*2=28

so each term is multiplied 2 times. But when it gets to the 7 don't you have to divide the term by 2 because you can't multiply it? so the answer would be 3.5 and 1.75. right?

Okay, that's what I thought. But I have to enter my answers onto an online service and it says my answers are wrong.
