Look at these numbers carefully. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, … Can you see the pattern here? These numbers are in certain patterns and here each number doubles each time. Observing patterns can solve problems and has many applications in our daily lives. To understand this in a more better way, let us scroll the article below.

**Q.** Explain the relationship rules for pattern?

**A.** The types of relationship rules for patterns are recursive pattern rule and explicit. Recursive pattern rule explains the start number of any pattern and its continuation. Explicit pattern rule tells us to attain any tern that is present in the pattern without the need to list all the terms before it.
