Hello,
I have a sequence of 99 numbers, which I cant determine the pattern for. Are you able to work it out? The numbers are actually the experience points required for a certain level in a computer game. I have been given the numbers to reach level 99 but I need to work out the XP required for the levels up to 200.
Can anyone work out the formula please?
The numbers are:

Hi Masters,
Firstly, thankyou for taking the time to help.
Secondly, im afraid I am not very good at math (GCSE was good, but that was a loooong time ago).
Can anyone explain how I would put your formular to practical use in my application of solving the number sequence?
Edit: Is Y the "experience points", x the level (1 to 99)?
Thankyou,
Tom.
There was an error in my initial function. The coefficient of x^3 should be -.2232. I have edited it so it is now correct.
However, this function does not work for large values of x because the function is cubic has a max value around x=42. If you test x=16, you get 1879 which is close to your value, but not exact.
At 17, y=2120
At 18, y=2367
At 19, y=2621
At 20, y=2879
Bottom line, This doesn't work for you. You'll have to keep looking.
The numbers are not uniformly spread. It appears as if they are generated with separate functions:
1 thru 11
12 -- 18
19 -- 28
29 -- 38
39 -- 48
49 -- 98
99 -- 198
from 99 to 198 it appears as if this should work.
Starting at 99.
Whatever level you are looking for, LEVEL is the number, and the POINTS will be the result.
k = LEVEL - 99
Subtract 99 from the level with which you are working.
Hope that helps.
There is not enough data to guess the next incrementing step beyond level 198.
