1)Create a sequence by determining the area of the first four rhombus(es)/diamonds
2)Find the general term of this sequence
3)what is the area of the 10th sequence
4) Graph it. (no need to do this for help)

Thanks guys!

What work have you already done on this assignment?

Do you know what a fibonacci sequence is? If so measure the area of each rhombus and try to establish a relationship between the these areas and the sequence.

Well start measuring the areas of each rhombus.

Read this. Area of a Rhombus

Do these numbers make a fibonacci sequence?

Firstly, I am given no values to find the area of the rhombus but I can find the area of a rhombus using that example which gives me a number and two variables.

Secondly, it's asking me to create a sequence by determining the area of the first four rhombuses/diamonds... I have no idea which ones are the first four "rhombuses/diamonds" Is it like finding the area of 4 rhombuses and adding them together to make a sequence out of it?
