    OK, the next items are <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">260, 369 and 505</span hide>
    And the 50th item is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">62525</span hide>

    Explanation:
    <table border=1><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Number</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1st order diff.</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">2nd order diff.</span hide></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">3rd order diff.</span hide></td><tr><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1</span hide></td><td align=right><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
