This is the cube of the number , ie 2X2x2=8. 3X3X3= 27, 4X4X4= 64, etc.

I thought EE wasn't supposed to help with homework?

Rogiee, we do help with homework, we just don't give direct answers. We try to guide the asker to the solution.

In this case, naseeam is not in grade school. He gets these questions from his children's math books. We explain in full detail (as web_tracker has done) and leave it up to him how he transfers the information to his kids.

I wasn't aware of the "policy" for homework questions.  My answer was correct, but didn't have the details that web_tracker provided.

I will keep this in mind for future homework questions.

A good way to solve finish-the sequence-problems is to look at the sequence 
made up of the differences between terms.  And then repeat the process for
the new sequence.

This will solve any sequence based on a polynomial.

     1   8    27    64  125
       7   19    37   61
         12   18   24
            6    6
