__The Table Problem__
Funky Furniture sells tables that can be joined together for large meetings. Tables and chairs are set up this way.

If a line of 24 tables is set out like this, how many chairs will be needed? Can you give a rule for the number of chairs needed for any given number of tables?

__The Fish Problem__
With 26 matchsticks, you can make 4 fish in this pattern.

How many fish can you make with 140 matchsticks?

Write an equation that gives the rule for the number of matchsticks you need for a given number of fish.
