Since 1 , 4, 13 do not form either an arithmetic nor a geometric sequence,
having only 3 terms is not enough information to see the pattern
e.g. I could claim that the sequence is
1 4 13 40 121 by claiming that I add increasing powers of 3 to get the next term
that is,
1+3 = 4
4+9 = 13
13+27 = 40
40 +81 = 121
