Greetings All I'm having some trouble figuring out a sequence of numbers using common Difference. I've figured out the polynomial for the even numbers for the sequence but the odd numbers have a repeating pattern which I'm not sure how to create a Polynomial for. I've included my work here http://demos.onewithall.net/number_patterns.jpg on the even numbers which I've verified and they are correct. I've included the odd numbers also I started doing the sequence of numbers using common Difference but as you can see I get a pattern of repeating numbers (-5,4). How can I go about getting the polynomial for the odd numbers like I did for the even ones. Tia sal2
