    can someone please help me with this:

    Jo now is asked to construct free-standing tins in the middle of the floor.

    (example picture is added as an attachment)

    Investigate possible free-standing tin stacks with, for example, square and other polygonal bases (up to decagon), making the rules for such construction clear.

    For each questions when there is a formula discovered, explain what it is and how it was found.

    When the formulas of other bases are found form a general equation which relates to all other stacks. Show working out and that have related all the formulas. This general formula should be able to find the number of tins in any stack
