```I should add for completeness: Alternative answer is 1053 ( 13*3^4)

two typos corrected
cheers

The question re number series 5 18 57 174 525 ?
gave the answer 1578 ( result of 3(x+1) being the next value to right.)

However the difference between given adjacent pairs ( right - left) is a
sequence 13,39,117,351. They can be related as 13 x 3 raised to
sequential powers 0,1,2,3 eg 13*3^1 and so on....

Suggested solution: as the two solution sets separate, add another term
to the provided data and solve for the next ( and use both in separate
questions...
