Hi shape sorter, we’ve come across this pattern of symbols and we need your help.

Which image would come next in this series?

We must choose one image from the following:

a) b) c) d) e)

This is a **repeated pattern** series as it is going from a black triangle to a white circle and back to a black triangle again.

Say the pattern out loud: “Black triangle, white circle, black triangle, white circle…” What comes next?

The correct answer is d as we need another black triangle after the circle.

Let’s try another one:

Which image would complete this sequence?

We must choose one image from the following:?

a) b) c) d) e)

This question is a bit like the one above, as there is a **repeated pattern** going from black circles to white circles.

In questions like this, it is a helpful idea to see if there is anything we can **count**.

If we count the circles here, we can see that we are adding **one more circle** each time.

The last shape has four white circles so this means we need **five black circles** to complete the pattern.

This makes image c the correct answer.

It’s now your turn to find the next image in the series.

Remember to look for **repeated patterns** and see if there is anything you can **count**.
