it goes 0 + 1.5 = 1.5 then 1.5 + 3.5 = 5 then 5 + 5.5 = 10.5 then 10.5 + 7.5 = 18 then 18 + 9.5 = 27.5

485....1+4=5, 5+12=17, 17+36=53, 53+108=161, so 161+324=485

its 485

1 + 4 = 5; 5 + (4*3) = 17; 17 + (12*3) = 53; 53 + (36*3) = 161; 161 + (108*3) = 485

That one I was off alittle bit but I got it.

Last one.

The number which best completes the sequence below is:
107 214 642 2,568 12,840

76400
76004
77000
77040
77400


THis one is kind of tricky.. 107 *4 = 428 but then if you go further it doesnt work.

107*1 + 107 = 214
214*2 + 214 = 642
642*3 + 642 = 2568
2568*4 + 2568 = 12840
12840*5 + 12840 = 77040
