In this assessment, students investigate non-zero integer triples (called Addition Triples), in which (1) all three numbers are different non-zero integers, and (2) the first two numbers add up to the third number. For example, the number triple (2, 3, 5) form an Addition Triple as none of the three numbers are equal (i.e. they are all different), none of the three numbers are zeroes, and 2 + 3 = 5. Some other Addition Triples are (5, 6, 11) or (2, 5, 7). In this investigation, we are looking at the Total Number of Addition Triples that we can make from a list of n integers, considering whether n is an odd or even number.
