7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 5040). Note that you could also make this pattern by multiplying the first number by 1 (1 × 1 = 1), the second number by 2 (1 × 2 = 2), the third number by 3 (2 × 3 = 6), the fourth number by 4 (6 × 4 = 24), the fifth number by 5 (24 × 5 = 120), and so on. Example 2. The double factorial involves ∞ 64 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles just odd or even numbers. For example, 0!! = 1, 2!! = 2, 4!! = 4 × 2 = 8, 6!! = 6 × 4 × 2 = 48, and 8!! = 8 × 6 × 4 × 2 = 384. 1, 2, 8, 48, 384, 3840...

In this sequence, N = 8 and M grows from 0 to 8. For example, 8! 8! = =1 (8 − 0)! 0! 8! 0! 8! 8! = =8 (8 − 1)! 1! 7! 1! ∞ 65 ∞ 12 Factorials 8! 8! = = 28 (8 − 2)! 2! 6! 2! 8! 8! = = 56 (8 − 3)! 3! 5! 3! 8! 8! = = 70 (8 − 4)! 4! 4! 4! 8! 8! = = 56 (8 − 5)! 5! 3! 5! 1, 8, 28, 56, 70, 56, 28... The next two numbers are 8 and 1. Note that there is a simple geometric way to generate this same sequence. It's called Pascal's triangle. Study the triangle illustrated on the following page.

1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216... The next two numbers are 343 (since 73 = 7 × 7 × 7 = 343) and 512 (since 83 = 8 × 8 × 8 = 512). Example 2. This pattern consists of powers of three. For example, 30 = 1, 31 = 3, 32 = 3 × 3 = 9, 33 = 3 × 3 × 3 = 27, and 34 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 81. 1, 3, 9, 27, 81... The next two numbers are 243 (since 35 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 243) and 729 ∞ 60 ∞ 300+ Mathematical Pattern Puzzles (since 36 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 729). Note that you could also make this sequence by multiplying the previous term by 3.
