Use the pattern "1 less than 3 times the number." Start with the number 5. What is the 4th number in the pattern?

The rule "1 less than 3 times the number" makes this equation:
3x1
1st number: 3 * (5)  1 = 15  1 = 14
2nd number: 3 * (14)  1 = 421 = 41
3rd number: 3 * (41)  1 = 123  1 = 122
4th number: 3 * (122)  1 = 366  1 = 365
