 Question 256439: ron was doodling in his notebook and noticed the following: 3 segments can be drawn between 3 points, 6 segments can be drawn between 4 points, and 10 segments can be drawn between 5 points. a. find an equation giving the number of segments "y" as a function of the number of points "x". b. according o this formula howmany segments can be drawn between 70 points. c. how many points are needed to draw 45 segments between them.Answer by drk(1908)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Here the pattern is 1,3,6,10, . . . The formula is where x is the number of points -- If x = 70, then = 2485 segments -- x = 9, x+1 = 10. We need 9 points for 45 segments
