Pattern Recognition

Use your powers of observation and intuition to guide your guess for the pattern. Be aware of common sequences like the integers, primes, factorial, arithemtic or geometric progressions, etc.

Other approaches include looking at successive differences of the terms, adding another sequence (often constant or linear) to the current sequence, dividing out by common factors, etc.
