Okay, we have $2,4,16,256,....?$

Look for a shared distinction between each. They are all divisible by $2$. Since they are all divisible by $2$, we have ${2}^{1},{2}^{2},{2}^{4},{2}^{8},...?$

Now let's look at the power exponents, $1,2,4,8,...?$

It looks like for $1,2,4,8,...?$ can work if we have $2}^{n$, starting a $0$.

Now we have $2}^{{2}^{n}$

Plug in to be sure:

${2}^{{2}^{0}}=2$

${2}^{{2}^{1}}=4$

${2}^{{2}^{3}}=16$

${2}^{{2}^{4}}=256$

Given:

$2,4,16,256,...$

Each element of the sequence appears to be the square of the one before it, as shown by:

$4={2}^{2}$

$16={4}^{2}$

$256={16}^{2}$

This would result in the formula:

$a}_{n}={2}^{{2}^{n}$

However, note that we have been told nothing about the nature of this sequence except the first $4$ terms. We have not even been told that it is a sequence of numbers.

For example, it can be matched with a cubic formula:

${a}_{n}=\frac{1}{3}(109{n}^{3}-639{n}^{2}+1160n-624)$

Then it would not follow the squaring pattern, but would continue:

$2,4,16,256,942,2292,4524,...$

We could choose any following numbers we like and find a formula that matches them.

No infinite sequence is determined purely by its first few terms.
