# Talk:Sierpinski Triangle Fractal

Patrick, you need to explain what the x means in y = 3x + 1. This is not a typical equation where you can plug in a value for x and then simply multiply it by 3 and add 1. Do you understand what the x means in this case? Also, is there a way to get directly from the iteration stage to the number of triangles? (You can demonstrate this by plugging in 5 for x, for example. You get only 16 triangles, where in Stage 5 iteration of Sierpinski's Triangle, there are actually 121 triangles in Iteration 5.

One other clarification, when you say "shaded" in your description, do you mean shaded white or black? -Mr. Taranta (14:30, 3/12/12)

This is looking good! First, I would say look over at the content. Check spelling, grammar, punctuation etc.

In the description you mention a blue Sierpinski’s Triangle. Could you upload the picture you are referring to, also it would be helpful to label points or at last the midpoint and dashed lines so the reader gets a better understanding of your description.

I noticed that in your basic description there isn’t much text. How about you give a short definition of what a fractal is and anything you might think is interesting about Waclaw Sierpinski. This will you’re your reader in.

Also, to make things look a bit neater could you use the math syntax like you did when you gave the definition of the area.

As for the properties like the area, and perimeter and dimension could you give an analogy so the reader gets what you mean. For instance, if you keep cutting smaller pieces of a cake sure enough you won’t have any left. (this is an analogy to the area). This will help in the long run because I’m sure a lot of people would scratch their head when they read the fractal dimension equation.

Good Luck.
