**Santa’s Deliveries**

**For a success card, find the solution but remember to explain how you found the answer and any working out that you used. Good luck!**

Father Christmas has a problem! He has found that each year he is delivering more and more Christmas presents. He has been keeping a record of this for the past few yearsÂ and is worried about how many presents he will be delivering after the 15th year. Unfortunately, he has lost some of the results and only has the first few years.

Here is what he has left:

Year 1 – 1 Present delivered

Year 2 – 4 Presents delivered

Year 3 – 9 Presents delivered

Year 4 – 16 Presents delivered

Year 5 – 25 Presents delivered

Year 6 …. The rest is missing

**Santa wants to know how many presents would be delivered in the 15th year? Can you find a link between the year and the number of the presents delivered? Maybe that will help you find the answer? **

**For a success card, find the solution but remember to explain how you found the answer and any working out that you used. Good luck!**
