## How do you find the nth of a pentagonal number?

Each pentagonal number is split into a rectangular array and a triangular number, a subdivision that suggests that we can represent the nth pentagonal number by (n-1)n + Tn, where Tn is the nth triangular number. So the sub-pattern suggests that the nth pentagonal number can be expressed as Pn = (n-1)n + n(n+1)/2.

## What is the pentagonal number formula?

Since in the visual representation of pn, the pentagon has n+1 dots on each side, counting the number of dots on each side and multiplying by 5, we get, 5(n+1). However, we have counted the dots at the vertices twice, so we subtract 5: which gives us pn=5n.

## What does centered pentagonal number mean?

A centered polygonal number consisting of a central dot with five dots around it, and then additional dots in the gaps between adjacent dots. The general term is , and the first few such numbers are 1, 6, 16, 31, 51, 76, (

## What are the first 10 hexagonal numbers?

The first few hexagonal numbers (sequence A000384 in the OEIS) are: 1, 6, 15, 28, 45, 66, 91, 120, 153, 190, 231, 276, 325, 378, 435, 496, 561, 630, 703, 780, 861, 946… Every hexagonal number is a triangular number, but only every other triangular number (the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc.) is a hexagonal number.

## What patterns are in Pascal triangle?

One of the most interesting Number Patterns is Pascal’s Triangle (named after Blaise Pascal, a famous French Mathematician and Philosopher)….Each line is also the powers (exponents) of 11:

• 110=1 (the first line is just a “1”)
• 111=11 (the second line is “1” and “1”)
• 112=121 (the third line is “1”, “2”, “1”)
• etc!

## How do you do triangular numbers?

Triangular Number Sequence

1. The first triangle has just one dot.
2. The second triangle has another row with 2 extra dots, making 1 + 2 = 3.
3. The third triangle has another row with 3 extra dots, making 1 + 2 + 3 = 6.
4. The fourth has 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10.
5. etc!
