Complete the pattern: Monday,
Tuesday, what, what, what, what, what.
All the whats in that question show
us that there’s a lot of words we need to fill in. We’re given a pattern, and we need
to complete it. And we call this a pattern even
though it’s not to do with numbers or shapes because the words that we’re looking at
go in a certain order. Can you see what these words
are? We can see the words Monday and
Tuesday. This pattern is the days of the
week. We know there are seven days in the
week. And some people start saying the
days of the week on different days.
In this question, we’re starting
with Monday. After Monday comes Tuesday. But what day comes after
Tuesday? After Tuesday comes Wednesday, then
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and then Sunday. These are the days of the week in
order. And once we finish this pattern
every week, we start again. So the day after Sunday will be
Monday again. We recognize that the pattern was
the days of the week. And so, the missing days were
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
