What will the final figure look like given that pile of toothpicks?
What's a guess you know is too high?
What's a guess you know is too low?
What information would be useful to know here?
- ImageToothpick count
We used a pack of 250 toothpicks and made 12 levels. If we used another 250 toothpicks, how many levels would that make?
Write a function t(l) that takes the number of levels (l) and returns the total number of toothpicks (t) in that pyramid.
