Help w/reading pattern

row 40 says has two inc
row 41 says to work even in patt (no inc)
how do I know what the patt is ?
thanks for help!

The pattern is however you’ve been working the stitches up to row 40. Work R 40 the same as you would except you put an inc at the beg and end of the row, R 41 is the same it would be but with no increases.
