Question 5:

Study the pattern:

1 × 8 + 1 = 9 1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876

12 × 8 + 2 = 98 12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765

123 × 8 + 3 = 987

Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works?

(Hint: 12345 = 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1).

Answer:

123456 × 8 + 6 = 987648 + 6 = 987654

1234567 × 8 + 7 = 9876536 + 7 = 9876543

Yes, the pattern works.
