On my math worksheet it says, and I quote "Describe the following pattern(s) and determine the next two terms:" and then this little booger comes up. And honestly, I can't figure it out for the life of me! So if you could help it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
1, 3, 2, 6, 4, 9,...

Looks like two interlocking sequences:
1 2 4 8 16 32 ...
23 6 9 12 ...
Of course, other patterns are possible, but those are the easiest for me to see.

Okay I get where you are coming from on the 1 2 4 yada yada yada thing but I don't get how you got the second part with the 23 6 9 12. Can you please explain?

Well Mr. Steve, I looked up two interlocking sequences anddddd... I got nothin. Nope. Nada. Zip. Not a single thing that's has to do with math. Yay 😕

Well, the 23 is a typo, as you should have figured out from the original problem. I meant to say
3 6 9 12 ...
There's nothing official about "interlocking sequences" but if you can see some other pattern than the mixing of those two simple sequences, be my guest.
