You multiply each number by 121.
Oh, haha. I didn't even see that that was how you were supposed to read the numbers. You should have made it a list instead of straight across. :/ReplyDelete
I thought the comma was a new number in the sequence
The next number is 2,357,947,691. The sequence is displaying the odd powers of 11, so:ReplyDelete
11^1 = 11
11^3 = 1131
11^5 = 161051
11^7 = 19487171
11^9 = 2357947691
