on this one, I have colored the tiles

For goodness sakes, if you do not know how to rotate your photo just turn your camera when you take your shot.

I am sure you are smart enough to work out how to put pictures up that are not sideways!

a)   For the first series, the  coloring pattern is

        2, 4, 6

      The algebraic expression is     b =  2n    where b is the  number of colored blocks  for  figure  n


       For the second series we have


       The algebraic expression  is  b = 2n + 2   where b is the number of colored blocks for figure n


b)   For the first expression, 2 is the  coefficient on the variable and we have  no constant term

      For the second expressiion, 2 is both the constant term and the coefficient


c)  The coefficient in the  first algebraic expression tells us that the  number of  blocks to be colored increases by 2          for each successive  figure


     The coefficient  in the second algebraic expression also increases the number of blocks  by 2 for each successive figure and the  constant term tells us that we will increase the number of blocks by 2 from each corresponding figure in the  first series
