1,2,3,4,?,6

of course it's 5, and to describe the relationship is

n+1

for n+5 with a start number of 10 we have

5,10,15,20,25,30

-------------------------------

for THE FOLLOWING

1,4,10,22,90,182

(n+1)x2

--------------------------------

I am looking at trying something on the powerball (just the red one, not the white 5 for now)involving backsolving an equation thatthe data can fit into... I can't see anyother way around it. I have googled for days (weeks even) and according to mathematics as we know it, there is no general formula for this type of thing. I am going to try some different things out including interpolation (to find midpoints in draw data) and then extrapolation (to find the next draw basedonresultsfrom interpolation).

I'm otherwise out of ideas again, and I hate being out of ideas with a PB jackpot over 100M
