Good Morning
Dd is struggling with q 46 on this maths pack. If anyone by chance has the pack to hand & can explain the answer it would be very much appreciated. It relates to a series of 3 patterns with triangles and asks which formula represents the number of tiles in the nth pattern in the series. The answer is 1 + 2n.
Sorry I have no idea how to upload a pic of the question.
Thank you in advance

I can’t help with the question, but info on how to post a picture can be found here

Although we normally say pictures are restricted to the rehab section of the forum, we do allow in other areas in circumstances like this.

The first pattern has 3 triangle, second has 5 and third has 7 so the sequence is:

If add 2 we start with 2n ( add 3 start with 3n). If n=1 we have 2n=2 because the first number is 3 we have to add 1 more, therefore 2n +1.

Hope that helps.

Can anyone explain why the answer to the question below is £33 please?

Leatown is holding its annual fun run.
Medals are given to all finishers.
The cost, in pence, of n medals is given by the expression
300 + 20n
How much will 150 medals cost?

Thank you in advance

We need to substitute 150 for n as this is how many medals we want.

Cost = 300 + (20 x 150) = 300 + 3000 = 3300p
