# Question

# Answer

Figure Number | Number of dots |

1 | 1 |

2 | 1 + 2 |

3 | 1 + 2 + 3 |

4 | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 |

n | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + … + n |

It is good for your child to memorise that formula for 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + … + n is

n(n + 1) ÷ 2

n(n + 1) ÷ 2 = 120

n(n + 1) = 240

n² + n = 240

Now, √240 = 15.4919…., so the answer should be 15.

Test

15 × 16 = 240

240 ÷ 2 = 120

Therefore, figure **15 **has 120 dots.

There is a pattern for this. The figure number is equal to the number of dots in the largest diagonal row.

I used a calculator for this because i did additions to reach 120. I found the answer to be 15 in that way.

There may be other methods, but for me, I used this method which suits me best.
