I noticed that 2 grows by 2 when it is squared, and 3 grows by 6 when it is squared, and 4 grows by 12, and 5 grows by 20... etc. etc.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So 3's increase when squared is 4 more than 2's increase when squared, and 4's increase when squared is 6 greater than 3's increase when squared, and 5's increase when squared is 8 bigger than 4's......... etc. etc... <---The change from 4-5 is 2 bigger than the change from 3-4, and so on..

Why does this trend exist? Does it mean anything?

Thanks guys
