May you please explain this simple Geometry concept?
I'm working on finding the nth term in patterns in crap but I am having trouble explain this one.
1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21
I know it's changing by 2 but with a difference of +1 each tern, but I don't know how to label it!
Also, I don't understand when it asks, "If a polyagnial has 100 sides, how many diagonals may it have?"
Please explain these two, this is the second time I've failed this Geometry test. Grr.

Nope you don't know . look at it again. 1+(1+1) 3+(2+1) 6+(3+1) 10+(4+1)
Second one Draw even sided shapes 4 6 8 10 ..... Find the pattern then you'll find your equation then you can find the number of diagonals for 100.
Have fun... I could do these for you but what would you learn?

If nth term is Xn then
For the second quenstion i have to refer something
No of diagonals of any polygonal having n number of sides is
