**PRACTICE TIME**

**Question 1**:

Given below are some patterns.

Figure out the rule for each and continue the pattern.

**Answer**:

Rule for each pattern:

(a) The pot colour is alternate red and blue.

(b) Two times A followed by B.

(c) In the first block, one flower petal is drawn; then 3 are drawn and then 5 petals.

(f) The sequence is: morning, afternoon, evening, night.

Here are the complete patterns:

Morning, afternoon, evening, night, morning, afternoon, evening, night.

**GROWING PATTERNS**

**Question 1**:

Can you see the rule and continue the pattern?

**Answer**:

Yes the pattern is that the number of arrows grows by one every two ovals. The first two ovals have 1 arrow. The next two have 2 arrows, so on and so forth. Also, in each set of two, the first oval has downward arrow(s) and the next has upward arrow(s).

**NUMBER PATTERNS**

**Question A**:

Look for the rules and continue these growing patterns:

**Answer**:

(a) 51, 56, 61, 66, 71, 76, 81, 86

(b) 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63

(c) 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512

(d) 12A, 13B, 14C, 15D, 16E, 17F, 18G

**Question B**:

Look at these growing patterns. Find out what to add to each number to get the next one:

**Answer**:

(a) 1, 3, 6, 10, __, __, __, __, __.

First number: 1

Second number: 3 (i.e. 1 + 2)

Third number: 6 (i.e. 3 + 3)

Fourth number: 10 (i.e. 6 + 4)

Thus, next number will be

10 + 5 = 15

15 + 6 = 21

21 + 7 = 28

28 + 8 = 36

36 + 9 = 45

So, the final pattern will be: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45.

(b) 0, 2, 6, 12, __, __, __, __, __.

First number: 0

Second number: 2 (i.e. 0 + 2)

Third number: 6 (i.e. 2 + 4)

Fourth number: 12 (i.e. 6 + 6)

Thus, next number will be

12 + 8 = 20

20 + 10 = 30

30 + 12 = 42

42 + 14 = 56

56 + 16 = 72

So, the final pattern will be: 0, 2, 6, 12, 20, 30, 42, 56, 72.

(c) 1, 3, 7, 13, __, __, __, __, __.

First number: 1

Second number: 3 (i.e. 1 + 2)

Third number: 7 (i.e. 3 + 4)

Fourth number: 13 (i.e. 7 + 6)

Thus, next number will be

13 + 8 = 21

21 + 10 = 31

31 + 12 = 43

43 + 14 = 57

57 + 16 = 73

So, the final pattern will be: 1, 3, 7, 13, 21, 31, 43, 57, 73.

(d) 2, 3, 6, 11, 18, __, __, __, __, __.

First number: 2

Second number: 3 (i.e. 2 + 1)

Third number: 6 (i.e. 3 + 3)

Fourth number: 11 (i.e. 6 + 5)

Fifth number: 18 (i.e. 11 + 7)

Addition of sequence of odd numbers i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7 …

Thus, next number will be

18 + 9 = 27

27 + 11 = 38

38 + 13 = 51

51 + 15 = 66

66 + 17 = 83

So, the final pattern will be: 2, 3, 6, 11, 18, 27, 38, 51, 66, 83.
