Consider the difference in sucessive numbers.

3-1 = 2 = 2^2 -2 = (1st prime no )^2 - (1st prime no )
9-3 = 6 = 3^2 -3 = (2nd prime no )^2 - (2nd prime no )
29-9 = 20 = 5^2 -5 = (3rd prime no )^2 - (3rd prime no )
71-29 = 42 = 7^2 -7 = (4th prime no )^2 - (4th prime no )

So the answer is 71 + 11^2 - 11 = 181
