Pattern Match

Here are three versions of a pattern match thing:

Pattern Match - Colors
Pattern Match - Shapes
Pattern Match - Numbers

As usual .. suggestions and corrections welcome.

Re: Pattern Match

I think some of the colours need separating a bit. The first pattern it gave me was an alternating string of the two yellows, and it took me a while to realise that it wasn't just one colour.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: Pattern Match

Thanks Jane! Will look into it.

Mathsy: two yellows... the 4th and 6th colours? I only ask to confirm, because they look different on my monitor.

UPDATE: made the "Gold" (6th colour) into an "Orange" is that better?

Re: Pattern Match

Oh, I didn't realise it might have been my monitor's fault. Ah well.
I did mean the 4th and 6th colours, and they look better now. smile

Re: Pattern Match

If they looked bad to you, they may look bad to lots of other people. That is why it is so valuable to have you check things! Thanks again.
