1-56.

Copy the pattern below and continue the pattern for successive powers of 3. Homework Help ✎

In a sentence or two, describe a pattern formed by the units digits (the “ones”) of the numbers in the pattern.

3

^{1}= 3. List the next three powers of 3 for which the ones place is a 3.

Look for repeating numbers.

Look at the pattern in (a) and use it to solve (b).

Multiply the previous answer by 3.

3^{3}=27

3^{4}=81

3^{5}=243

3^{6}=729

Now find 3^{7}, 3^{8}, and 3^{9} on your own.
