Figure 3 of a tile pattern has 11 tiles, while Figure 4 has 13 tiles. The pattern grows at a constant rate. Homework Help ✎

1. Write an equation to represent this situation.

Make a table for the pattern. Use the table to write your equation.

 Figure # 0 1 2 3 4 $\$ Tiles 11 13

How much does the number of tiles increase as the figure number increases?

$y=2x+5$

2. Which figure will contain $1015$ tiles?

Let $y=1015$ in the equation. Then solve for $x$.
