Example text

1! ∞ 65 ∞ 12 Factorials 8! 8! = = 28 (8 − 2)! 2! 6! 2! 8! 8! = = 56 (8 − 3)! 3! 5! 3! 8! 8! = = 70 (8 − 4)! 4! 4! 4! 8! 8! = = 56 (8 − 5)! 5! 3! 5! 1, 8, 28, 56, 70, 56, 28... The next two numbers are 8 and 1. Note that there is a simple geometric way to generate this same sequence. It's called Pascal's triangle. Study the triangle illustrated on the following page. Each number on the inside of this triangle comes from adding the two numbers above it. If you happen to know about algebra, yet another way to make this triangle is to foil out (x + y)N.

The first several prime numbers are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31... Example 1. This sequence is formed by skipping every other prime number starting with 5. The pattern is 5, skip 7, 11, skip 13, 17, skip 19, 23, skip 29, 31, etc. 5, 11, 17, 23, 31... The next two numbers are 41 and 47 8 Prime Numbers (since 37 and 43 are skipped). Example 2. This pattern doubles each prime number. For example, 2 × 2 = 4, 2 × 3 = 6, and 2 × 5 = 10. 4, 6, 10, 14, 22... The next two numbers are 26 (since 2 × 13 = 26) and 34 (since 2 × 17 = 34).

The next two numbers are XXI (since 19 + 2 = 21) and XXIV (since 21 + 3 = 24). ∞ 55 ∞ 10 Roman Numerals #1 II, IV, _____, VIII, X, _____, _____, XVI, _____, XX #2 III, VI, XII, XXIV, XLVIII, _______, __________, _____________, _______________ #3 CVI, CV, CIV, CIII, CII, CI, __________, __________, __________, __________ #4 XXV, L, LXXV, C, CXXV, CL, __________, __________, __________, __________ #5 C, CC, CCC, CD, D, DC, _____, _____, _____, _____ #6 MCMLX, MCMLXV, MCMLXX, MCMLXXV, MCMLXXX, MCMLXXXV, __________, __________, __________, __________ ∞ 56 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles #7 DLXX, DLX, DL, DXL, DXXX, DXX, __________, __________, __________, __________ #8 IX, VII, XIV, XII, XIX, XVII, XXIV, XXII, __________, __________, __________, __________ #9 II, VI, III, IX, VI, XVIII, XV, XLV, XLII, __________, __________, __________, __________ #10 VII, IX, XII, XVI, XXI, XXVII, __________, __________, __________, __________ #11 II, IV, VI, IX, XI, XV, XX, XL, LI, __________, __________, __________, __________ ∞ 57 ∞ #12 10 Roman Numerals CC, CD, CI, CL, CM, CV, CX, DC, DI, __________, __________, __________, __________ #13 III, V, IX, XVII, XXXIII, LXV, CXXIX, __________, __________, __________, __________ #14 I, I, II, III, V, VIII, XIII, XXI, __________, __________, __________, __________ #15 II, III, V, VII, XI, XIII, XVII, __________, __________, __________, __________ ∞ 58 ∞ 11 Powers A number raised to a power has an exponent.
