You won't get an answer from mared. (S)he only wants full answers without having to do any work. If a full solution isn't posted you are guaranteed to be ignored.

Interweaving 3, 9, 16, 24, 33, ... (differences: 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)
with 3, 5, 6, 6, 5, ... (differences: 2, 1, 0, -1, ...)
amounts to soroban's solution.

If it's a decent problem, there's a simpler answer that I haven't found.
