this looks tedious
Yeah that's why I need help. I am falling asleep, but I need to finish my homework :(
Let me think
so how can we figure out the number of hexagons from there?
oops I made a typo on the first image attachment. I meant to say 15+15-2 = 28
kinda. so if we had then three sets of the hexagon we would have: 28 x 3 = 84 since two sets has 6 sticks being subtracted, then in three sets would it be 12 sticks out?
teacher said that it won't be exactly 95. she also said that there will like 15 hexagons total and one stick left over i think?
but how did u get 15 regular hexagons? i see like 20 hexagons?
I count 3+3 = 6 hexagons given to you in the problem there are four groups of this pattern repeated (in two different configurations). So 4*6 = 24 hexagons total
wait, what? i am lost!
what u just said right now.
Do you see how I got 94 sticks?
look back at the attachments hexagon4.png and hexagon5.png
each block has 6 hexagons, agreed?
and do you see how I have 4 of these blocks?
yes because 28 x 4
yeah and you subtract off the portions where the hexagons are joined (to correct for double counting)
6 hexagons per block * 4 blocks = 24 hexagons total
I'm not sure how you see 20 hexagons
i thought there were five hexagons. i found my mistake... but my teacher said fifteen... we are getting 24 here.
that is strange why s/he said 15 when there are more hexagons possible
maybe there's some other configuration that I'm not thinking of
it's okay i will just keep 24. i will ask her tomorrow thank you :)
@jim_thompson5910 I got it!!!
