I cannot figure this out!
What is the series (the Pattern) of this sequence?
{1,5,1,5,1,5,1,5.......}

That is a sequence, not a series.
A sequence is an ordered list of terms.
A series is a sum of terms, which may be terms in a sequence.
so
1,5,1,5,1,5..... is a sequence
but
1+5+1+5+1+5..... would be a series
the pattern of your sequence could be said to be alternating 1 and 5
