tree pattern puzzle
Posted 03 November 2012 - 03:15 PM
can you generate the next 4 rows?
at what point would the number of black overtake the number of red?

any clue on my second question? I'm honestly not sure myself.

Does your second question which row is mostly black, or at which row there are more cumulative blacks?

I had no idea what the tree was supposed to be. I was just extending patterns.

for my second question, ignoring the outer most layer (my solution spoiler), which row is cumulative black more than cumulative red?

Another apparent oddity: the "diagonal" for 4 has a BLACK square for 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, but RED for 24
wait... in your triangle the "12th" diagonal has a square on 2,3,4,6,8 and 10 but not 9?
ALso, the "diagonal" for 9 has Black for 9, but Red for 18
Of course, these wouldn't be oddities if we understood the pattern...but I don't
