Answer to Last Week’s Question:
If you remember, last week we asked:
145, 300, 610, 1230
In the above sequence every term after the first is formed by multiplying by x and then adding y, where x and y are positive integers. What is the value of x + y?
The Answer is:
145*2 = 190 +10 = 300 300*2 = 600 + 10 = 610 610*2 = 1220 + 10 = 1230 X = 2 Y = 10 X+Y = 12
