2. 1 = 4 -- (1 * 3) + 1 = 4
2 = 7 -- (2 * 3) + 1 = 7
4 = 13 -- (4 * 3) + 1 = 13

Check out the other numbers to see if that pattern is the same for them.

3. I see, the second # keeps adding 3.
1=4 is 1+3=4
2=7 is 4+3=7
3=10 is 7+3=10
4=13 is 10+3=13
5=16 is 13+3=16
6=19 is 16+3=19
7=22 is 19+3=22
8=25 is 22+3=25
Thanks to all who answered.
