I love numbers. And I can see how many patterns can be found within.
Example of using patterns for math problems:
Let say you want to know what the sum of all the #'s from 1-100. That's a lot of adding even with a calculator 1+2+3+4........instead you can use a
1+100 is 101, 2+99 is 101 so the pattern that forms is that if you take the next lowest (3) and the next highest (98) you will again get 101. So now
you have 50 #s to work with instead of 100, but even better...you have 50 of the same numbers...so we can just multiply 101*50=5050.
Sorry, for the math lesson and I know this post is older but You started this
Thanks again for your embedding help and for the post.
