Figure 3 of a tile pattern has 11 tiles, while Figure 4 has 13 tiles. The pattern grows at a constant rate. Homework Help ✎
Write an equation to represent this situation.
Which figure number will contain 1015 tiles?
Make a table for the pattern. Use the table to write your equation.
How much does the number of tiles increase as the figure number increases?
y = 2x + 5
Let y = 1015 in the equation. Then solve for x.
