From: rrw To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2008083010:47:50 Subject: Re: array I find it interesting that no one has responded to this post, so I will. As language arts teacher with math certification, I answer, "Yes, in cases where the pattern is repetitive." Some plaids, however, are randomwhich makes an array impossible. Arrays must form squares or rectangles. If you were to assign numerical value to stripes in a plaid such that all stripes of the same width and color had the same value, those stripes could repeat themselves in an array. The directional differences (horizontal/vertical) of the stripes operate in the same ways as distribution of multiplicands. rrw
