    it looks like you are reducing by 5 each time.

    IN other words: 9 minus 5 equals 4. Then 4 minus 5 equals negative 1. Then -1 -5 = -6.

    So the next two numbers would be: -11 and -16.

    be conscious that the 1st term (a million) is a million/a million², the 2nd term (a million/4) is a million/2², the third term (a million/9) is a million/3², etc. in general, the nth term is a million/n². So, the subsequent 2 numbers are a million/5² and a million/6², that are a million/25 and a million/36. wish that facilitates :)
