Here’s a challenging maths problem for you…

Here’s a challenging maths problem for you…

Think about the pattern between the first two numbers and the last number in each sentence. 

 

1)   3 — 1 = 24

2)   5 — 2 = 37

3)   7 — 2 = 59

4)   8 — 1 = 79

5)   7 — 5 = 212

6)   15 — 3 = 1218

 

What is the pattern? When you have figured it out, let me know in a comment – add your own as well!

HOW TO WRITE GOOD

 

  1. Avoid Alliteration. Always.
  2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
  3. Avoid clichés like the plague. They’re old hat.
  4. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
  5. Be more or less specific.
  6. Writers should never generalise.

Seven: Be consistent!

  1. Don’t be redundant; don’t use more words than necessary; it’s highly superfluous.
  2. Who needs rhetorical questions?
  3. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
