Algebra 1

Use inductive reasoning to describe each pattern, then find the next two numbers in each pattern.
1,1/4,1/9,and 1/16... those are fractions except for the number 1 in front.
Find the 2nd,5th, and 9th terms of each sequence.
1/2,1/3,1/6,and 0... those are fractions except for the number 0.

The denominator increases by one (which is squared) each time.
1^2 = 1
2^2 = 4
and so on.
The second term (of course) is 1/3, but the zero has me baffled.... Is there a typo?
Sorry that I can't be of more help.
