Two students each write a function, S(n), that they think can be used to find the number of squares needed to make the nth figure in the pattern shown.

Use the drop-down menus to explain why each function does or does not represent the number of squares needed to make the nth figure in the pattern.

The number of **squares** needed to make nth figure in the pattern is

** S(n) =** 2ⁿ.

### What is square?

A **square** is **"**a shape that has four sides of the same length and the four angles of right angles**".**

According to the question,

S(1)=2; S(2) =4; S(3) = 8: S(4)=16 .........

S(1) = 2; S(2) = 2² = 4; S(3) = 2³ = 8; S(4) = 2⁴ = 16....... S(n) = 2ⁿ

In to find the number of **squares** needed to make the nth figure in the given pattern is **S ( n ) = 2ⁿ**.

Hence, the number of **squares** needed to make nth figure in the pattern is** S(n) =** **2ⁿ.**
