7.
a) 1; 3; 6; 10
b).
c) Sketch 5: 15
Sketch 6: 21
10 x (10 +1) ÷ 2
= 55
25 x (25 + 1) ÷ 2
= 325
7. Let us also investigate TRIANGULAR NUMBERS .
a) Now complete the following table:
Sketch | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | ||
Number of triangles |
b) Draw sketches 5 and 6 and complete the table:
We can use the following formula to determine the number of triangles in each sketch:
E.g. Sketch 5 (S _{5} ) = 5 × (5 + 1) ÷ 2 = 15
(i) Use the formula and determine (use your pocket calculator if necessary)
