    the 1 on the bottom is giving you your starting place and the 3 on the top is telling you how many times to go through it so for the first on, you have (3*1+1)+(3*2+1)+(3*3+1)

    so would the answer to the second one then be 9 instead of 6?

    yeah, because you iterate twice(the 2 on the top) so its (3*1)+(3*2)
