    I'm talking about it generally.

    For example, if I have {1,5,138233,393943585}, how will I make a formula for it USING WOLFRAM MATHEMATICA?

    This will give you the sequence from 1 to 100

    @eliassaab Is there a function which I could use for finding a formula?

    You have to know a(n) in terms of n \[ Table[ n/(n+1),{n,1,100}] \]

    For example, if I have {1,2,4,8,16,32.....}, is there a command which would return me with \(a_n = 2^{n - 1}\)?

    Sum[i, {i, 1, k}] = (k (k + 1))/2

    No. if you know a(n), you can find the sequence, but not vice versa.

    I wish Mathematica could generalize a formula for any given sequence.

    You can write a function that check a specific sequence.
