    Answer:

    95

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s take a look at what numbers we’re adding to generate new numbers in the sequence:

    From 4 to 5 is +1

    From 5 to 9 is +4

    From 9 to 18 is + 9

    From 18 to 34 is + 16

    From 34 to 59 is +25

    So we have a sequences of additions: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25. Recognize these numbers? They’re all perfect squares: 1^2,2^2,3^2,4^2,5^2. Following this pattern, we can get the next number in the sequence by adding 6^2, or 36. This gives us the number 59 + 36 = 95.
