If your rule was right 45 would be in there somewhere. This has got me stumped

the answer of adding powers of two was correct, when we were given just the first five numbers. with the addition of your additional numbers, it became incorrect.

3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 13, 15, 19, 21, 25, 31, 33, 39, 43, 45, 49, 55, 61, . . .

which are:
the prime numbers +2 (except that '3' shouldn't be in the list, as '1' is not a prime number.

[edited to fix embarassing typo]

not quite.

he's not going by squares, but by powers of 2: +1, +1, +2, +2, +4, +4, +8, +8, etc.

17, 25, 33, 49, . . .
