    , you find the diff between 1st and 2nd, which is 1, then 2nd and 3rd, which is 2, then 3rd and 4th, which is 4, then 4th and 5th, which u inductively assume its 15

    from 0 to 1 is 1, from 1 to 3 is 2, from 3 to 6 is 3 so from 6 to 10 is 4 so from 10 to some number would be 5, so the answer would be 15
