## The Pattern of Odd Numbers: Finding the 100th Term

This sequence, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, represents the first few **odd numbers**. To find the 100th term, we need to understand the pattern.

### The Pattern

Each term in the sequence is **2 greater** than the previous term. This is the defining characteristic of odd numbers.

### Formula

We can represent this pattern with a simple formula:

**Term = (2 * n) - 1**

where 'n' is the position of the term in the sequence.

### Finding the 100th Term

To find the 100th term, we substitute 'n' with 100 in the formula:

**Term = (2 * 100) - 1**
**Term = 200 - 1**
**Term = 199**

Therefore, the **100th term** of the sequence 1, 3, 5, 7, 9... is **199**.
