Indeed, however I cannot be faulted for establishing such a pattern based on the limited amount of terms in the sequence given. While I concede your point that such curve fitting is not usually considered an answer to such a puzzle, I will validate it by saying 4 terms is not usually considered a question for such a puzzle. A flawed question deserves a flawed answer.
