6*4=2(12x)

24 =2(12 + x)

or

2(6+x)

consider that at each round, if there are x people already contacted, then 3x more will be contacted, making for a total of 4x after the round. So, the sequence looks like this:

1

1+3 = 4

4+12 = 16

16+48 = 64

...

Round n: 4^(n-1) + 3*4^(n-1) = 4^n

So, for round 5, there are already 4^4 = 256 people, and 3*256 = 768 more will be contacted, totaling 4^5 = 1024 at the end of round 5.
