Solution:

The pattern of the number series is:

28 + 11 = 39

39 + 24 (=11+13)=63

63+39(=24+15)=102

102 + 56 (= 39 + 17) = 158

158 + 75 (= 56 + 19) = 233

28 + 11 = 39

39 + 24 (=11+13)=63

63+39(=24+15)=102

102 + 56 (= 39 + 17) = 158

158 + 75 (= 56 + 19) = 233

Solution:

The pattern of the number series is:

7+3²=7+9=16

16+5³=16+125=141

141+7²=141+49=190

190+9³=190+729=919

919+11²=919+121=1040

7+3²=7+9=16

16+5³=16+125=141

141+7²=141+49=190

190+9³=190+729=919

919+11²=919+121=1040
