    Are you looking for a rule to describe the sequence or just the shape of the data?

    It's not helpful at all, which is why I have undone the edit. However, I have also closed the thread (to prevent the OP doing this again, S.O.P.) which I suppose re-begs the latter half of your question.

    (Unfortunately, people often edit or delete questions if they suddenly start worrying about asking for help when they weren't meant to. Such people would be well advised to read rule #7 here: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...carefully.html). My signature also contains the link.
