# Pattern Recognition

In each of these puzzles, you'll try figure out what creative patterns we intended. However, if you're up for a challenge, try to then come up with a different, crazy way to explain each sequence!

# Finding Specific Terms in a Pattern

What is the $$\color{red} {27 ^\text{th} }$$ term in the following sequence:

$1, 4, 9, 16, 25, \dots?$

What is the $$9^{th}$$ term in the following sequence: $2, 6, 12, 20, 30, \cdots ?$

What is $$\color{red} {18 ^\text{th} }$$ term in the following sequence: $-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, \dots?$

What is the $$\color{red} {9 ^\text{th} }$$ term in the following sequence:

$1, 3, 5, 7, 9, \ldots$

What is the $$\color{red} {8^{\text{th}} }$$ term in the following sequence of even integers:

$2, 4, 6, 8, 10, \dots?$
