Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you agree with what I have so far? (see attached image)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how can we figure out the number of hexagons from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok do you see how I'm getting 50 sticks for this next pattern?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oops I made a typo on the first image attachment. I meant to say 15+152 = 28

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kinda. 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm able to get to 94 sticks, but not 95

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0teacher 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I get the same thing if I try this configuration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how did u get 15 regular hexagons? i see like 20 hexagons?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you see how I got 94 sticks?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look back at the attachments hexagon4.png and hexagon5.png

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1each block has 6 hexagons, agreed?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and do you see how I have 4 of these blocks?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah and you subtract off the portions where the hexagons are joined (to correct for double counting)

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16 hexagons per block * 4 blocks = 24 hexagons total

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm not sure how you see 20 hexagons

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought there were five hexagons. i found my mistake... but my teacher said fifteen... we are getting 24 here.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is strange why s/he said 15 when there are more hexagons possible

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe there's some other configuration that I'm not thinking of

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's okay i will just keep 24. i will ask her tomorrow thank you :)
