Daniel,

I wanted to point out to you that the pattern is broken at one point.
Did you mean for that to be the case?  Just in case you didn't I will

(3+9(3(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9))))))) = 2192187

Or you might have meant

(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9(3+9)))))))= 6576582

Why don't you try to do this on a calculator and write down what
you get after each step and see if you can get a pattern.

Ethan - Doctor On Call
