    Graham is folding a piece of paper to make an origami figure. Each time he folds the paper, the thickness of the paper is doubled. The paper starts out flat, with a thickness of 3 millimeters. A. Write a list of six ordered pairs showing the output as the thickness of the paper when the input is the number of times it is folded. Explain how you came up with your ordered pairs. B. Is this relation a function? Explain why or why not using the ordered pairs you came up with in Part A.

    The x-values will be the number of folds and the y-values will be the thickness of the paper. What do you think?

    for example the first three ordered pairs can be these: \[\Large \left\{ {\left( {0,3} \right),\left( {1,6} \right),\left( {2,12} \right),...} \right\}\] where the first component stands for the number of times paper is folded

    please it is not the direct answer, since your problem asks for six ordered pairs

    How about explaining the pattern rather than giving it to the asker @Michele_Laino . You'd think a moderator would know better. Good for you @Buddog12 . Well done!

    sometimes, giving the pattern explicitly is more powerful than giving an explanation
