It will be sunny tomorrow
Three dots after a pattern that indicates the pattern continues
Examples: Write a rule for the pattern and find the next two numbers.
1.) 30, 25, 20, 15,…
Start with 30 and subtract 5 repeatedly; 10,5
2.) 2, -2, 2, -2…
Alternate 2 and its opposite; 2,-2
3.) 1, 3, 4, 12, 13,…
Start with 1 alternate multiplying by 3 and adding 1;39,40
4.) 3, 9, 27, 81,…
Start with 3 and multiply by 3 repeatedly; 243, 729
5.) 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8,…
Add the previous two numbers together; 13, 21
Your conjecture is a prediction and it may be true or false.
6.) The last digit of the product of 5 and a whole number is either 0 or 5.
7.)A number and its absolute value are always opposites.
False; 2 and the absolute value of 2 are not opposites. (you could pick any positive number as a counter example.) This only holds true for negative numbers
