Yeah that's why I need help. I am falling asleep, but I need to finish my homework :(

Let me think

do you agree with what I have so far? (see attached image)

calculusxy
  • calculusxy
yes
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
so how can we figure out the number of hexagons from there?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok do you see how I'm getting 50 sticks for this next pattern?

oops I made a typo on the first image attachment. I meant to say 15+15-2 = 28
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
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?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I'm able to get to 94 sticks, but not 95

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?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I get the same thing if I try this configuration

  • calculusxy
but how did u get 15 regular hexagons? i see like 20 hexagons?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
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
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
wait, what? i am lost!
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
where at?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
what u just said right now.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
Do you see how I got 94 sticks?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
look back at the attachments hexagon4.png and hexagon5.png
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
yes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
each block has 6 hexagons, agreed?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
yes
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
and do you see how I have 4 of these blocks?
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
yes because 28 x 4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah and you subtract off the portions where the hexagons are joined (to correct for double counting)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
6 hexagons per block * 4 blocks = 24 hexagons total
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
okay
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
then...?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I'm not sure how you see 20 hexagons
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
i thought there were five hexagons. i found my mistake... but my teacher said fifteen... we are getting 24 here.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that is strange why s/he said 15 when there are more hexagons possible
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
maybe there's some other configuration that I'm not thinking of
calculusxy
  • calculusxy
it's okay i will just keep 24. i will ask her tomorrow thank you :)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no problem

@jim_thompson5910 I got it!!!
