Hi there,

Do let me know if the answers provided matches yours.

The formula / algorithm for the pattern is usually related to the Pattern Number.

Q1.

Number of tiles / squares along the length of each rectangle = Pattern Number + 2
Number of black tiles / squares = Pattern Number

In Pattern 24, number of tiles / squares along the length = 24 + 2 = 26; number of white tiles /squares along the width = 3.
Therefore, total number of tiles = 26 x 3 = 78
Number of black tiles / squares = 24
Hence, number of white tiles / squares = 78 - 24 = 54

Q2.


(a) Number of white tiles in Pattern 18 = 400 - 324 = 76
(b) Pattern 32 ( see attached worked solution )
(c) Dotted tiles = Square of Pattern Number
White tiles = ( 4 x Pattern Number ) + 4
So in Pattern 53, Dotted tiles = 53 x 53 = 2809
White tiles = ( 4 x 53 ) + 4 = 216
Difference = 2809 - 216 = 2593


Cheers,
Edward

P.S. 13/4 - Reposted attached worked solution due to some typo err.

Dear Edward

Thanks for the solution.

The answer for Q2 (b) given is 34. I think your answer 32 is correct.
