6. follow R_scott's suggestion

when n = 1 , 2n+3 = 2(1) + 3 = 5
when n = 2 , 2n+3 = 2(2) + 3 = 7
when n = 3, 2n+3 = 2(3) + 3 = 9
....

What do you notice about the output numbers?
How does that tie in with 2n+3 ?

The excuse " I am clueless in math" is such a lame one.
With a little bit of effort and trying to understand what you are doing
will bring you away from being "clueless"
