Using Patterns to Solve Problems ^fsso^ Quick Review One box holds 15 books. Number of Boxes Number of Books >• How many books will 2 boxes 1 15 hold? 3 boxes? 4 boxes? Make a table. Two boxes hold 30 books. Three boxes hold 45 books. Four boxes hold 60 books. > Predict how many books 10 boxes will hold. 2 30 3 45 4 60 W\AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA The pattern rule is: ^CiMultiply the number of boxes by 15. To predict the number of books 10 boxes will hold, multiply: 10 X 15 = 150 Ten boxes will hold 150 books. Try These 1.

Add 4 each time. Multiply the square number by 4. The number of dots on any perimeter is a multiple of 4. The 10th square will have 10 X 4, or 40 dots on its perimeter. 57 is not a multiple of 4, so no square has 57 dots. 60 is a multiple of 4 because 15 X 4 = 60. So, the 15th square has 60 dots. Try These :> f > & ¦'} C 4> 1 o a) Complete the table for this pattern.
