**Steve**, Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 2:53pmwhat's with all the words? We have perfectly good digit keys...

1/2, 3/7, 1/3, 5/19, 3/14, ...

Looks pretty random, but we know we are after something we can easily relate to n. What if we get the denominators steadily increasing? Rewrite the sequence as

2/4, 3/7, 4/12, 5/19, 6/28

So, now it's easy to see that

an = (n+1)/(n^2+3)

a11 = 12/124 = 3/31

Dunno quite what to make of all the verbage below that. Try using some symbols and asking a question.
