. Study the pattern


1×8+1=9,12×8+2=98,123×8+3=987 ,1234×8+4=9876 ,12345×8+5=98765 . Write the next four steps. Can you find out how the pattern works ?

Best Answer

Explanation:
As per the question, the patterns are
1 × 8 + 1 = 9
12 × 8 + 2 =98
123 × 8 + 3 =987
1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 × 8 + 5 =98765
In the same manner, the next four steps are
123456 × 8 + 6=987654
1234567 ×8 + 7=9876543
12345678 × 8 + 8=98765432
123456789 × 8 + 9=987654321 
For the pattern to work, one consecutive number gets added with the first term, the second term remains constant, and the third term is replaced by one number after the other.
Final answer:
Hence, the next four steps are 
123456 × 8 + 6=987654
1234567 ×8 + 7=9876543
12345678 × 8 + 8=98765432
123456789 × 8 + 9=987654321 
The pattern works when a consecutive number gets added and replaced in every pattern.
