Light Blue, Dark Blue On the light blue, dark blue I knew that the first one was 1/1 because it was all light blue. The second one was split into thirds. Two of those thirds were light blue which would make that answer 2/3. On the third one I saw four squares that were light blue and five that were dark. That means that the answer would be 4/9. The three answers so far are 1/1, 2/3, and 4/9. Do you notice a pattern? I do. The top number keeps multiplying by two and the bottom number multiplies by three. That would make the next one 8/27 and the next one 16/81. If there was one more then it would be 32/243.
