The number of animal blocks in the first row is....

I can’t seem to find a pattern, having a hard time solving this problem too.

Also How do I find the total number of blocks used in the arrangement?

The answer somehow is 36, and the total number of blocks is 576. I dont know how to get this.

Im probably supposed to use one of these formulas... Sn = n[2a +(n-1)d]/2

Sn = n(a +tn)/2. Still I dont get how to do it

**bobpursley**, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 8:48pmthe difference between the ninth and fifth is 28, so that is between 4 rows, so the differnce between each row is 28/4=7

start with 9th and go down:

92

85

78

71

64

57

50

43

36 first row.

Sum them: Sn= 9(2*36+8*7)/2=9*(72+56)/2=

Sn=9*64=576
