SO for my homework tonight, I got this fractal.
It starts out as a straight line in stage one
In stage two, I kind of tents up...
Stage zero________ Notice it is all one segment
Stage Two____/\______ This is now Four segments
Then, both sides of that tent tent up too.
So first I have to make a table of the first few stages...
Stage |* |0 |1 |2 |3 |4 |
segments|1 |4 |16|40|88|
And now I have to find the equation, but I don't seem to get it enough to do that.... But I think I should know how to find the equation from points by now,
So I'm asking two questions really...
A: What is the equation
Thanks for the urgent help. THis is due tomorrow (!)
Actually, I've recounted quite a few different times. But I realize that I forgot to add something.....
In stage three, there are two other tents added, I believe that would mean that there would be an additional two tents added to the next, etc.
so now my data is....
Stg 0 | 1| 2| 3| 4
Seg 1 | 4|16|46|204
