Answer:

If this pattern continue what will the 538th tile be? $,$,*,#,#,#,$,$,*,#,#,#

The pattern $,$,*,#,#,# (6 characters) repeats itself over and over.

A new sequence begins every 7th character.
538 / 6 = 89.6667

The sequence has repeated itself completely 89 times.

A new sequence began on the 535th tile (6 * 89 + 1 = 535th tile)

The 538th tile = #.
