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...
