Can you help me find an equation for this correlation?
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)C2. The value of (n+1)C2 is (n+1)n/2.Cheers,
