Hello,
This figure shows the number of segments used to form longer and longer rows of squares.
It shows that 1 square has 4 segments
2 squars has 7 segments and 3 squares has 10 segments.
The question is how many segments will be in a row with 100 squares?
Thought maybe a proportion, but I'm not sure what to do.

If you make a table its simple
XY
14 (1*3+1=4)
27 (2*3+1=7)
310 (3*3+1=10)
100? (100*3+1=301
SO the answer is there will be 301 segments.
