Kemi makes a pattern with sticks. Some are long and some short. She writes a number pattern on the sticks. Five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45. Write the number that will be on the next short stick.

Let’s look closely at the short sticks. Five, 15, 25, 35, 45. Can you spot what’s happening to the numbers each time? Each number is increasing by 10. So, the next number should be 55. If we add the next two sticks, the number pattern will say five, 10,15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55.

The numbers on the short sticks would be five, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55. Our prediction was correct. The number that would be on the next short stick is number 55.
