Page1/1            Cascade 2000-06-22 From Peter Bengtsson: Can you help me find an equation for this correlation? 2*1+1 3*2+0 4*2+2 5*3+0 6*3+3 7*4+0 8*4+4 9*5+0 10*5+5 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. Answered by Penny Nom.
