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,...

Steve,
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 😕

Steve,
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.
