I have no idea what "T 2n 1" and "T 2n 4" mean ...

If the question means, can you get an answer of 257 for T by using only whole numbers for n in these formulas, then:

 

    T  =  2n + 1                    T  =  2n + 4

257  =  2n + 1                 257  =  2n + 4 

256  =  2n                       253  =  2n

128  =  n                      126.5  =  n

 

Then, if you use 128 for n in the formula  T  =  2n + 1,  then you can get the answer of 257.
