A hardware supplier has designed a series of six plastic containers with lids where each container(after the first) can be placed into the next larger one for storage purposes.The containers are rectangular boxes, and the dimensions of the largest one are 120 cm by 60 cm by 50 cm. The dimensions of each container is decreased by 10 percent with respect to the next larger one.
State the pattern in the sequence
This is what I've done...
The volume of the largest one would be 3600 cm3
The 2 largest would be 3600-360 = 3240 cm3
The 3 one would be 3240 -324 = 2916 cm3
Happy new year!
