patterns with fractions

write a rule for the sequence.then,find the unknown number

how do you do this?ill give you an example...1/2, 2/3, 1, 1 1/6.it says,think:the pattern is increasing.add 1/6 to find the next term.here is a problem.... 1 3/8, 1 3/4, 2 1/8, 2 7/8 rule:

thank you

3. Try converting to fractions. Then you have

11/8 14/8 17/8 23/8

I think the last one should be 2 1/2, since you added 3/8 the first two times.

If it really is 2 7/8, ya got me.

Or, it could be that you just missed a term of 2 1/2 in between 2 1/8 and 2 7/8.
