# The first 5 terms of the sequence are:1,5,10,16,23 find the next two terms of the sequence?

Notice that the difference between consecutive numbers of the sequence is increasing by 1. 5 (next term) - 1 (previous term) = 4 10 (next term) - 5 (previous term) = 5 16 (next term) - 10 (previous term) = 6 23 (next term) - 16 (previous term) = 7 X (next term) - 23 (previous term) = 8 So, X = 8+23 = 31 (6th term) Similarly, Y(next term) - 31(previous term) = 9 So, Y = 9+31 = 40 (7th term) Therefore, next two terms of the given sequence are 31 and 40 😊
