Intriguing pattern

  1. Mar 15, 2013 #1
    on a graph, y=1 i started with x=3 then 6,9,12, and so on...till uncountable
    then y=2:x=4,8,12,16...
    etc etc
    you get the drift....till i ran out of room on the graph i used y=around 50 or etc...
    and with all the points graphed i came up with a pattern...

    my question is has anyone come across this before and are there any internet links to explore
    i love the patterns that can be found by doing simple things...
    another question...are there any Mac apps to for graphing that lets you places dots and certain intervals so i could explore this more..(found out the equation for the arcs involved) the program i used is called 'live' its a music program (no x and y axis) i work with...exploring doppler in music and i expanded and found this pattern :P
