Math Pattern Help 
Ms. Sue,
The x column increases by 1 and the Y column decreases by 1.
4  6
5  5
I'm sure you can take it from there.

Reiny,
as the x increases by 1, the y appears to decrease by 1
y = x + 10
for x=4 , y = 4+10 = 6 , yup, that fits the pattern
for x =8, y = 8+10 = 2
etc.
(notice x=12, y=2 fits my pattern)

Based on what you said this is what I came up with. Did I do the rest of the pattern correctly?
Thank you so much for your help.
