ANSWERS: 3

Take a look at the first two numbers in the sequence: 4 and 9. 4 + 5 = 9, but 9 + 5 does not equal 19. However, 9 + 10 = 19 and what simple math relates 5 and 10?

39. The pattern indicates that you double the number and add one.

39. Linda is NOT correct. First term, then 5 is added. Next term, 10 is added. For the next term, you add 20 now (to 19) and get 39. Then you add 40 to 39 and get 79. The term after 79 will be 79 + 80, which equals 159. You never need to ADD 1 to anything. Most simple formula is the correct one.
