E. the freezing point of water. 1(a) shows the mercury at 8°C above zero. Now suppose the temperature falls 16°C below this point. First it falls 8°C to 0°C, and then continues to fall for 8°C below zero. To show this temperature on the scale it must be marked in some way which is different from the 8°C above zero, or there would be confusion. To distinguish the degrees below zero from those above a minus sign ‘−’ is put before all those below zero, and if necessary a plus sign ‘+’ before those above zero.

To find the number of lines in any particular shape you find the number of squares in the shape, multiply this number by 3 and then add 1. You can use letters to describe the number of lines in a particular shape. If you use the letter n to describe the number of squares in the nth shape in the sequence, then you can write the number of lines as 3 × n + 1, or 3n + 1. You can then use this expression to write down the number of lines in any shape. For example in the 17th shape the value of n to be substituted in 3n + 1 is 17, so the number of lines is 3 × 17 + 1 (= 52) lines.

If any integer is multiplied by 2 and the product increased by 1, the result is an odd number. This is a generalization about an odd number, expressed in words. This can be expressed by means of algebraical symbols as follows. • let n be any integer • then 2 × n is always an even number • therefore 2 × n + 1 is always an odd number. The last step shows an algebraic expression which you can use to represent any odd number. The brevity and lucidity of this expression compared with the full description of an odd number above will be apparent.
