Im not sure if this is picture perfect explaining but ill do my best.
for 5 and 6 you just add 1 and then you add 1 to the 6 and x it by
two and then you add 1 to 14 and x it by three and then you add 1 to
45 and x it by four and then you add 1 to 184 and x it by five and
then you add 1 to 925 and x it by six and you get the answer which
is 5550.

Actually, 926 (925 +1) X 6 is 5556, not 5550.

5556 is the correct answer, and your method is spot on.

The RiddleDude had a different method of arriving at the same answer:

5*1+1 = 6
6*2+2 = 14
14*3+3 = 45
45*4+4 = 184
184*5+5 = 925
925*6+6 = 5556

Brianna, you are today’s winner!
