Hi all! I got a homework problem that says "it would be more preferable to do it with other people" so could everyone here help me? please? My parents are busy nad they don't anything bout math.
The Penny Problem
Task 1: This is a image pattern. The first diagram has 1 circle. The second diagram has 5 circles. The third diagram has 12 circles. How many are in fourth? How many circles are in the next three diagrams?
the diagram she supplied us with so I don't think it's +6 but i'm not sure.
Task 2: Is there a pattern to the number of circles you added each time? Make a list of all the patterns you notice.
Task 3: in math we want to generalize. Which means predict how the pattern continues. See if you can make a formula to the pattern.
Thats it but please show all your rough work. Thank You in advance.
