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
