To find the number of tiles in Figure 10 you can make a table and extend it to figure 10, write an equation and let x = 10, or think about what figure 10 would look like. The two tiles in the middle row are always there. Notice how many pairs of tiles are in each arm of the figure. Sketch figure 10 and determine the number of tiles.
