Try It! 1.2.1 After 55, what are the next three Fibonacci numbers? 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, . . . Show all of the steps you use to determine the answer The next number that comes after 55 is 84,144,233,377,610. I came up with this answer by first finding the pattern of this sequence.For example, I first added 1+1 to equal 2, then 2+3 to equal 5, and finally 5+8 to equal 13. I then see a sequence in which you must add all incoming numbers to get the response for the next number, and then repeat the procedure. I was able to locate the rest of the numbers in the sequence by the pattern. 35+55=89 89+144=233 233+377=610 Try It! 1.2.2 What numbers are in the sixth and seventh rows of Pascal’s triangle? The sixth row of the Pascal triangle is 21 The seventh row of the Pascal triangle is 28. I figured out these two numbers from the both rows by drawing a pascal triangle and having a visual in order for my mind to figure out the sequence the pattern is going. Try It! 1.2.3 Identify each sequence as arithmetic, geometric, or neither arithmetic nor geometric. If the sequence is arithmetic, give a common difference. If it is geometric, give the common ratio. For each sequence, what are the next two terms?
Show all of the steps you use to determine the answer 1. 2, 6, 18, 54, 162, . . . The process I took in order to identify the answer was by finding the pattern that might fit with the corresponding numbers. I started with adding different numbers but it wouldn’t fit with the incoming numbers. But then, using various techniques, I came up with multiplying the previous number by three, resulting in an incoming number being correct. For the next two terms, I reached the number 486 and 1458 and for the process, I multiply the answer by 3. The sequence I encounter with this number was a
