Focus on the rectangle of blocks in the center of the figure. I the first figure, this rectangle is 3 x 1, in the second figure it is 4 x 2, in the third figure it is 5 x 3, etc. Then there are two extra blocks added on, on on upper right and one on lower left. So, if we let $$n$$ be the number of the term in the sequence, the total number of blocks in each figure is given by$B = \left( n+2 \right)n +2$You may expand and simplify if you like, but if you want the number of blocks in the 5th figure, just use n=5 in the above equation.
