My favorite math pattern:\[1\\11\\21\\1,211\\111,221\\312,211\\13,112,221\\1,113,213,211\]Out of the box thinking! What is the pattern or relationship? If you would please, when you figure out the answer, add the next term in the series, that'd be great. Keep the challenge fresh!

    The next element in the series is \(31,131,211,131,221\).

    I wonder if it would be possible to define a recurrence relationship for this pattern.

    1 how many 1s? one 1 (11) how many 1s? two 1s (21) how many of each? one 2 and one 1 (1,211) etc. each entry counts the number of digits... or so it seems to me
