Answer:

#35# and #48#

Explanation:

How do we get from #0# to #3#? One way would be to add #3#.

How about from #3# to #8#? Here, we can add #5#.

What about #8# to #15#? We could add #7#. You may be noticing a pattern here.

What do we do to get from #15# to #24#? We can add #9#.

It appears that we are adding two more than we previously did to get to the next number.

To get our last term, we added #9#, so let's add two more than that, #11#, to get to the next term.

#24+11=35# (this is our sixth term)

We can add two more than #11#, or #13# to the last term to get

#48#

Therefore, the next two terms would be #35# and #48#.

Hope this helps!
