Repeat the following procedure for the four given numbers.
Multiply the number by 4. Add 4 to product. Divide this sum by 2. Subtract 2 from quotient.

The 1st number is 1. The Result is 2
The 2nd number is 5. The result is 10
The 3rd number is 8. The result is 16
The 4th number is 11. The result is 22
a. Write a conjuncture that relates the result of the process to the original number selected. Represent the original number as n.
The result is 2n
b. Represent the original number as n and use that deductive reasoning to prove the conjecture in part a. Multiply the number by 4. The result is?

Step 1

The first number is 1
Step-1 Multiplying by 4 we get =1*4 = 4
Step-2 Add 4 to the product we get = 4+4 = 8
Step-3 Divide sum by 2 = 8/2 = 4
Step-4 Subtract 2 from quotient = 4-2 = 2 (result)

The second number is 5
step-1 Multiplying by 4 we get =5*4 = 20
step-2 Add 4 to the product we get = 20+4 = 24
step-3 Divide sum by 2 = 24/2 = 12
step-4 Subtract 2 from quotient = 12-2 = 10 (result)

The third number is 8
step-1 Multiplying by 4 we get =8*4 = 32
step-2 Add 4 to the product we get = 32+4 = 36
step-3 Divide sum by 2 = 36/2 = 18
step-4 Sub...
