Which expression represents the number in the pattern, where p is the position of the number in the pattern?

4(p + 5)
4p - 5
4(p + 4)
4p + 4

    I'll give you a hint. The pattern starts at p=2. So we have p=2-p=6. Plug that in and see what you get. Someone can check it for you.

    If your intent was to have 24 be the first number in the sequence, then 4(p + 5) represents all subsequent numbers.
