If the pattern shown is continued, what number will appear below 400?

|Number at the end of n th row is n² , so 400 will lie at the end of 20th row . The row below will end in 21² i.e 441 so the number below 400 will be 440.

800

Sorry, its 440,

Number of digits in each row is odd number.(1,3,5,7….)

And last digit in each row is sum of number of digits in all previous rows (16=1+3+5+7). Therefore, using AP if sum is 400, n=20. And the number of digits in a row is the summision of (n+n-1). Therefore, number of digits in 20th row is 39 and the number below 400 will be +40(39+1) i.e. 440(400+40)

Correct!

No shown below 400 is 21^2 -1

= 440 (ans)

reason- if you observe the last digit of every row you will find the square of numbers from 1…..n

then 400 is sq of 20 hence 20 will be in right corner

and in the next row 21^2 will be in right corner

therefore 440 is the ans

Perfect !

440 answer

Correct!

440

Ending term of each line is a square so 400 line will have 39 terms next line will have 41 terms so the 40th term of that line is 400+40=440 which is below 400.

440

20*20=400

so 21*21=441

441-1=440

440

21^2-1=440
