for x=1, 2x=2(1)=2 for x=2, 2x=2(2)=4 for x=3, 2x=2(3)=6 for x=4, 2x=2(4)=8 for x=5, 2x=2(5)=10 so you saying your pattern is 2,4,6,8,___ what goes in that blank, right? the 5th term is 10

if your first term is 1, how could it follow a 2x pattern unless it started with x=1/2 but x=1 2x=1 when x=1/2 not x=1 so i'm not sure of the question
