Sample text

N (N – 1)! for all positive 12 Factorials integers (N > 0). This way, 1! = 1 (1 – 1)! = 0! since 1! and 0! both equal 1. Example 1. This sequence is made from factorials. For example, 0! = 1, 1! = 1, 2! = 2 × 1 =2, 3! = 3 × 2 × 1 = 6, 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 24. 1, 1, 2, 6, 24, 120... The next two numbers are 720 (since 6! = 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 720) and 5040 (since 7! = 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 5040). Note that you could also make this pattern by multiplying the first number by 1 (1 × 1 = 1), the second number by 2 (1 × 2 = 2), the third number by 3 (2 × 3 = 6), the fourth number by 4 (6 × 4 = 24), the fifth number by 5 (24 × 5 = 120), and so on.

2, 3, 6, 18, 108... The next two numbers are 1944 (since 18 × 108 = 1944) and 209952 (since 108 × 1944 = 209952). Example 3. This sequence is similar to the Fibonacci sequence except that it adds the last 3 numbers rather than the last 2. For example, 0 + 1 + 2 = 3, 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, ∞ 50 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles and 2 + 3 + 6 = 11. 0, 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 20, 37... The next two numbers are 68 (since 11 + 20 + 37 = 68) and 125 (since 20 + 37 + 68 = 125). #1 #2 #3 #4 2, 2, 4, 6, 10, 16, ____, ____, ____, ____ ____, 3, ____, 7, 11, 18, 29, 47, ____, ____ 6, _____, 15, _____, 39, 63, _____, 165, _____, 432 309, 191, 118, 73, 45, 28, ____, ____, ____, ____ #5 1, 2, 2, 4, 8, 32, _________, _________, _________ ∞ 51 ∞ 9 Fibonacci Inspired #6 1, 2, 5, 13, 34, 89, 233, _____, _____, _____, _____ #7 #8 #9 #10 1, 1, 2, 4, 7, 13, 24, 44, 81, 149, ______, ______, ______, ______ 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 15, 23, 36, ______, ______, ______, ______ 1, 3, 5, 9, 15, 25, 41, 67, 109, 177, ______, ______, ______, ______ 0, 1, 2, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 22, 32, 47, 69, 101, ______, ______, ______, ______ ∞ 52 ∞ 10 Roman Numerals This chapter involves Roman numerals.

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). #1 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, ____, ____, ____, ____ #2 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, ____, ____, ____, ____ #3 #4 ____, 89, ____, 79, ____, 71, ____, 61 2, 3, 7, 11, 17, 19, 29, 31, 41, ____, ____, ____, ____ ∞ 46 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles #5 #6 #7 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14, ____, ____, ____, ____ 11, 31, 41, 61, 71, ____, ____, ____, ____ 3, 5, 7, 23, 29, 41, 43, 47, ____, ____, ____, ____, 113 #8 9, 21, 39, 57, 87, 111, _____, _____, _____, _____ #9 21, 25, 33, 37, 45, 57, 61, ____, ____, ____, ____ #10 4, 10, 22, 34, 46, 62, ____, ____, ____, ____ #11 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, _____, _____, _____, _____ ∞ 47 ∞ #12 #13 #14 8 Prime Numbers 102, 103, 105, 107, 111, 113, _____, _____, _____, _____ 3, 5, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 29, 31, 41, 43, ____, ____, ____, ____ 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 23, 29, 41, 43, 47, 61, 67, 83, ____, ____, ____, ____ ∞ 48 ∞ 9 Fibonacci Inspired The Fibonacci sequence adds consecutive terms together.
