4th - 2
5th - 2
6th - 2
7th - 2
8th - 2
9th - 3
10th - 3
etc, etc, but basically i realise that the pattern is you square root the term and round down, eg, if u wanted to find the 29th term, u squeare root, so u get 5.39 and round down to 5, so the 29th term is 5.
What i need to know is there a formula for this, not matter how complicated???
