Let's investigate different values for k in our "nleaf rose" equation:
It seems as though when k is an odd value, it is the number of pedals on our rose. So, n=k for our "nleaf rose." Let's test some odd values of k to see if this is true.







Yes, we can see that when k is odd, k is the number of pedals on our rose.
It seems as though when k is an even value, the number of pedals on our rose is 2k. So, n=2k for our "nleaf rose." Let's test some different values of k to see if this is true.








Yes, we can see that when k is even, there are twice as many pedals on our rose.
