Hii Bunuel.
Can you please explain the pattern. Though I understood the pattern, I am not able to visualize the pattern.
Hi Marcab,
Guess u would have found this soln by this time..
I faced this problem in GC test and got it wrong
So when i searched i found soln in BTG .. here it is...
We start off with 1 piece of pie.
Draw the 1st line, you add 1 more piece to the pie for a total of 2 pieces.
Draw the 2nd line, you add 2 more pieces to the pie for a total of 4 pieces.
Draw the 3rd line, you add 3 more pieces to the pie for a total of 7 pieces.
Draw the 4th line, you add 4 more pieces to the pie for a total of 11 pieces.
So the nth line will always add n more pieces to the pie.
A 5th line would give us 11 + 5 = 16 pieces.
A 6th line would give us 16 + 6 = 22 pieces.
I never knew one Pizza can be sliced into these many pieces
Also i drew Soln for 2 n 3 lines ... PFA...
I guess it ll help u...
