I am currently using Discovering Geometry, An Inductive Approach by Michael Serra, in my studies. I am however stumped on a question. On page 56 the question is:
Which number in the last group are Palis? (The question is also asked on page 45) The + sign is the box. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + 121 33 + 1,211 49 + + + 737 404 + 17 + 4,014 5,125 + + 40,204 11 + 7,373 366 + + + + 8,229 133 + 42,124 7,131 + ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Palis not Palis Which are Palis?
The book does not show how to find the answer. This is my only hope. I would appreciate if someone would respond and help me out. Thank you
