    a)The pattern is continued by subtracting 5 each time.


    b)The pattern is continued by dividing by 2 each time.


    e)

    1,4,9,16,25,36,49


    In this series,all numbers are the squares of consecutive integers.

    1^2=1

    2^2=4

    3^2=9

    4^2=16

    5^2=25

    6^2=36

    7^2=49
