### Create your own fish tessellation

August21

Tessellations are wonderful ways to create amazing patterns. The one above is based on squares and can be done with careful attention to detail. This is a great activity when studying different shapes in Junior Mathematics and, if using card, gives a practical take-home product ready to hang on display. Instructions are here. Also see our previous post on interactive Tessellations, Part II.

10 x 9 x 8 + (7 + 6) x 5 x 4 x (3 + 2) x 1 = 2020

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
