Figures with dots 
20120215 

A pose la question : Okay so my daughter came home and had this question for homework from her teacher. I have no idea what it means HELP!!
The question shows a figure that is a square. It has 5 dots on the top, bottom and on the sides looks similar to this:
. . . . .

. .
. . . . .
they want to know 3 more ways to show the number of dots in the figure. They have already shown one with just counting them
and the other one that they showed was circling the four corner dots and then taking the dots in between with a number sentence set up
like this: 4+4*(52) = 4+4*3= 16. They also besides giving 3 ways want us to write a number sentence and an algebraic sentence to show the number of
dots in the figure with "n" sides. Please help! So confusing ! I don't know if my square turned out or not but it should be 5 across the top and bottom and
on the sides and no dots in teh middle it is just the outside. Penny Nom lui répond.
