A pattern is a type of theme of recurring

events or objects and sometimes referred to


as elements of a set of objects. A list of
numbers which form a pattern is called
sequence. These elements repeat in a
predictable manner.

Arithmetic numbers
An arithmetic number is a sequences of
numbers that follow a pattern of adding a
fixed number from one term to the next
number.
d refers to common difference between the
two terms
Examples:
1. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, (d is 2)
2. 22, 18, 14, 10, 6, ...(d is (-4))
Geometric Numbers
Geometric number is sequences of numbers
that follow a pattern of multiplying a fixed
number from one term to the next.
r refers to common ratio.
Examples:
1. 1 , 2 , 4 , 8 , 16 , (r is 2)
2. 16 , -8 , 4 , -2 , 1 , ... (r is (-1/2))
Fibonacci numbers
A series of whole numbers in which each
number is the sum of the two preceding
numbers.
Example of number of sequence:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144,
Triangular numbers
This Triangular Number
Sequence is generated
from a pattern of dots
which form a triangle.
The sequence of triangular
numbers is 1, 3, 6, 10, 15,
21, 28, 36, 45,
Pentagonal numbers
The pentagonal sequence is
generated from a pattern of dots
which form a pentagonal.
The numbers in the series is 1, 5, 12,
22, 35, 51, 70 . . .

Square numbers
The next number in the square number
sequence is made by squaring where it is in
the pattern.
The sequence is 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64
The square root of a number is
the special value that when
squared gives the original
number.
Example:

Example:
1: 1x1=1
4: 2x2=4
and so on
Cube numbers
A cube number is a number that we can
write as a product of three equal factors
of natural numbers.
The sequence is 1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216,
343, 512, 729, ...
The cube root of a number is the special
value that when cubed gives the original
number.
Example:
Happy numbers and sad
numbers
A happy number is a number that when
we squared its digits and add them
together, and then take the result and
square its digits and add them together,
and keep doing that over and over
again, the final answer will be the
number 1.
If n is not happy, then its sequence does
not go to 1.
