    Sounds like you are just being asked draw the graph with the data points you have and manually interpolate to get the points you don't.

    There's a pretty obvious pattern to the progression of the sequence of you are used to thinking mathematically. If you look at the difference from one term to the next once you have them from the graph you should spot it.
