This is a look and say sequence. This sequence is obtained by describing the previous number in words and writing them as numbers. We started with 1, that is “one 1” (11). This can be described as “two 1” (21), this is now “one 2 and one 1” (1211) and so on. So the last number in the sequence, 312211, is said to be “one 3, one 1, two 2s and two 1s” which is 13112221.
An interesting fact, this sequence can be continued forever, but the maximum digit will never go past 3.
