  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.
