# Repeating Patterns

In this lesson, we want to find out together what a pattern is and what pattern is called a repeating pattern.

- Arrangements that follow a precise order are known as
**patterns.**Whenever a pattern is created, it is arranged based on certain rules. There are several types of patterns. It’s possible to make patterns using colors, numbers, and shapes. Here’s some info on one of these:**repeating**patterns. - Patterns that repeat again and again based on a particular rule are known as
**repeating patterns.** - Repeating patterns have two \(2\) primary parts – the core and the terms.
- The items or elements which create a pattern are known as
**terms**. - The elements of repeating patterns, which remain the same as well as repeat themselves are known as their
**core.** - To locate the core of these repeating patterns, search for the tiniest set of terms that keep repeating themselves.

## Locating Unidentified Terms of Repeating Patterns

At times, we might have to locate unidentified pattern terms pattern. To do this, first, locate the core of the pattern, then use it to locate unidentified terms.

### Repeating Patterns – Example 1:

Choose the picture that comes next in the picture pattern.

**Solution:**

This is a repeating pattern and if we look at the first sequence, we find that there is an orange oval after the green triangle shape. So our choice is the orange oval shape.

### Repeating Patterns – Example 2:

Choose the picture that comes next in the picture pattern.

**Solution:**

In this repeating pattern, if we look at the first sequence, we find that there is a blue heart shape after the red square shape. So our choice is the blue heart shape.
