Peter Bengtsson Can you help me find an equation for this correlation?
2*1+1 This is the way scores are calculated when you play the game Cascade. The more number of balls you manage to "click away", the better score you get. So, I wrote down lots of results for different amount of balls I clicked away. Clicking away one pair (two adjacent) of balls means 3 points. Clicking away three adjacent balls means 6 points. etc. You can see this from the list above. What I now want to do is to find an equation with only ONE unknown! Y= kn*X+c or something. Whereby I only know X, I can find Y. I am lost! How can this be done?? Can one use the Remainder Theorem for this? Any ideas? Hi Peter,Your numbers are
2*1+1 = 3 These are the number of ways to choose 2 objects from n+1 objects, _{(n+1)}C_{2}. The value of _{(n+1)}C_{2} is (n+1)n/2. Cheers,Nom
