You can then form a new line by doing the same iterative process down the next group of numbers.

The formula then follows that in the first line that you made, there is a linear relation between the variables. (t) The second line corresponds to a (t^2) quadratic relation etc.

If this doesn't work, start looking at ratios and the like looking for different relationships, but I have a feeling that in this case, it will work well.

just as a hint, try thinking about the 499 as 500-1 instead of 499

This looks like a simple arithmetic series with the common difference = -100,300.
