make a conjecture (obsevations based on patterns) for each sequence below.

a)7,10,13,16

b)4,44,444,4444,44444

c)2,10,50,250

d)1,2,6,42,1806,3263442

All except d) seem obvious.

What conjectures have you made?

a) Add three to each number to get the next number in the sequence.

What sentence can you write that will describe b ?

ya i cant describ things very well and a) was easy

i think i got c)

c)starting with two and ging up by multiplying wach new # by 5

i cant figure out the rest

You're right about number 2. But please proofread.

*ging?
*

wach?

b)

4 * ? = 44

44 * ? = 444

I made a mistake on b.

It's easier than I thought. What is the obvious relationship between those numbers?

it has a 4 added to it every time. but it just doesnt sound right because 4+4 is 8 not 44 so what other word can i use?

* sorry its *going and *each

and d) is like 1*2=2, 2*3=6, 6*7=42, 42*43=1806, 1806*1807=3263442

but i do not know how to put it into words.
