# Lines for Squares

Best Answer Pickett, 13 June 2013 - 07:28 PM

I don't think it works. Line is infinite, whereas you used line segments. In my thinking above lines create 8 square.

nice work Pickett!  When i originally did the problem, i extended the pattern through to 14 and 15 giving me the wrong numbers.  I should have checked it to make sure it was actually true

It is funny and fascinating to me that the triples continue after the jump at 1, 14, and 26 and then stops completely at around 30.
