EXAMPLE 3 Make a conjecture Given five collinear points, make a conjecture about the number of ways to connect different pairs of the points. SOLUTION Make a table and look for a pattern. Notice the pattern in how the number of connections increases. You can use the pattern to make a conjecture.

2
EXAMPLE 3 Make a conjecture Conjecture: You can connect five collinear points 6 + 4, or 10 different ways. ANSWER

3
EXAMPLE 4 Make and test a conjecture Numbers such as 3, 4, and 5 are called consecutive integers. Make and test a conjecture about the sum of any three consecutive numbers. SOLUTION STEP 1 Find a pattern using a few groups of small numbers. 3 + 4 + 57 + 8 + 9 10 + 11 + 1216 + 17 + 18 = 12= 4 3= 12= 8 3 = 33= 11 3= 51= 17 3 Conjecture: The sum of any three consecutive integers is three times the second number. ANSWER

4
EXAMPLE 4 Make and test a conjecture STEP 1 Test your conjecture using other numbers. For example, test that it works with the groups –1, 0, 1 and 100, 101, 102. – 1 + 0 + 1 100 + 101 + 102 = 0= 0 3 = 303= 101 3

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4 Suppose you are given seven collinear points. Make a conjecture about the number of ways to connect different pairs of the points. 3.3. ?15106310 Number of connecti ons 7654321 Number of points. Picture............................ +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +?

6
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4 Conjecture: You can connect seven collinear points 15 + 6, or 21 different ways. ANSWER

7
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 3 and 4 4.4. Make and test a conjecture about the sign of the product of any three negative integers. Test: Test conjecture using the negative integer –2, –5 and –4 –2 –5 –4= –40 Conjecture: The result of the product of three negative number is a negative number. ANSWER
