Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Sassy, a student:

I can't figure out what the next two integers in this pattern are 3,9,6,12,9 are.

Hi there.

Here's a hint: Have you ever heard of the expression "Two steps forward, one step back"?

If you triple it, you get "six steps forward, three steps back".
