    Describe the pattern formed in the sequence. Find the next three terms.

    I know the next three terms, but I don't understand how they want it written?

    looks like you are adding one to the numerator and 2 to the denominator

    if you want to be real fancy you could write a formula, but that seems like way too much work to figure out. probably have to write it recursively

    \[\frac{ n }{ (-1 + 2 n) }\]

    the sequence indicates in the fractional value a +1 o the numerator and +2 for denominator, but we need to decipher how the division occurred from whole number to fractional... hence n/(-1 + 2 n) 1/[-1+2 (1)] = 1 with this formula we can find the next value in either decreasing or increasing value from 1
