Any suggestions? Hmmm, lessee now ..... If we let r = 1, the rule tells us that . But holy cow ...... . So . Hmmmmm ..... can you play this game when r = 2? r = 3?

The answer book says its 4 , 7 , 10 , 13 Which is obviously + 3, but i dont understand how the formula shows that exactly. I can see how the first one is 4, as it says , but i cant see how it shows + 3.

I can see how the first one is 4, as it says , but i cant see how it shows + 3. + 3. Translation: The next term is 3 more than the previous term. That's what the + 3 in the given rule means!!! What do you think the + 3 means?
