2nd. Answer: C) multiply by 2 and add 3

1*2+3 = 5

5*2+3 = 13

13*2+3 = 29

29*2+3 = 61

The solution is 2x + 3. To get the next term in the pattern, the term is multiplied by 2 and then 3 is added to the result.

5 = 2(1) + 3

13 = 2(5) + 3

29 = 2(13) + 3

61 = 2(29) + 3

and 1st. A

Since there are 15 brown candies out of 52 total, the probability is 15/52.
