Want to know if you can help .

Problem:

Building Chimneys

Suppose you are building a house with a chimney, based on the pattern below (which I will try to describe). Use the table to find the relationship between the number of blocks you need and the term number.

Term Number = 1

Visual (figure) = 8 blocks total. 3 columns and 3 rows. 1st column has 2 blocks, 2nd & 3rd columns have 3 blocks.

Written Description = A house with a chimney 1 block high takes 8 blocks to build.

Process Column = (this is what we must solve)

Numerical Value of Term (number of blocks) = 8

Term Number = 2

Visual (figure) = 10 blocks total. 3 columns and 3 rows. 1st column has 2 blocks, 2nd & 3rd columns have 4 blocks.

Written Description = (we must solve)

Process Column = (we must solve)

Numerical Value of Term = 10

It goes all the way down to Term Number 4 (which we must solve everything).

OK, hope this is enough information to solve.

Thanks for your help!
