Example text

The next two numbers are 55 (since 21 + 34 = 55) and 89 (since 34 + 55 = 89). Example 2. This sequence multiplies the previous two numbers instead of adding them. For example, 2 × 3 = 6 and 3 × 6 = 18. 2, 3, 6, 18, 108... The next two numbers are 1944 (since 18 × 108 = 1944) and 209952 (since 108 × 1944 = 209952). Example 3. This sequence is similar to the Fibonacci sequence except that it adds the last 3 numbers rather than the last 2. For example, 0 + 1 + 2 = 3, 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, ∞ 50 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles and 2 + 3 + 6 = 11.

As another example, 3! = 3 × 2 × 1 = 6. Observe that 4! = 4 × 3! (since 24 = 4 × 6). Note that 0! is defined to equal 1. The reason that 0! = 1 is so that 1! can follow the rule N! = N (N – 1)! for all positive 12 Factorials integers (N > 0). This way, 1! = 1 (1 – 1)! = 0! since 1! and 0! both equal 1. Example 1. This sequence is made from factorials. For example, 0! = 1, 1! = 1, 2! = 2 × 1 =2, 3! = 3 × 2 × 1 = 6, 4! = 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 24. 1, 1, 2, 6, 24, 120... The next two numbers are 720 (since 6!

6 × 4 × 2 = 48, and 8!! = 8 × 6 × 4 × 2 = 384. 1, 2, 8, 48, 384, 3840... The next two numbers are 46,080 (since 12!! = 12 × 10 × 8 × 6 × 4 × 2 = 46,080) and 645,120 (since 14!! = 14 × 12 × 10 × 8 × 6 × 4 × 2 = 645,120). Example 3. This sequence features a formula for combinations in probability. This formula is: ????????! (???????? – ????????)! ????????! In this sequence, N = 8 and M grows from 0 to 8. For example, 8! 8! = =1 (8 − 0)! 0! 8! 0! 8! 8! = =8 (8 − 1)! 1! 7! 1! ∞ 65 ∞ 12 Factorials 8! 8! = = 28 (8 − 2)!
