# Definition of Number Pattern A number pattern is a list of numbers that follow a given rule.

For example, the sequence of numbers $1,2,4,8,16,\dots$ doubles each time.

Another example is the sequence of numbers $5,15,25,35,\dots$, which starts at $5$ and jumps by $10$ each time.

Each number in the number pattern represented by the blocks in the picture is a square number. The first one is equal to one squared, the second one is equal to two squared, the third one is equal to three squared, and so on.
