In this video segment from Cyberchase, The CyberSquad is trying to figure out the patterns followed by each of four musicians who play a song together. They start by charting the pattern of each instrument, and in doing so they use their knowledge of... factors. After testing a few possibilities, they are able to successfully find the pattern that represents the song. Watch "Performance by Music of the Spheres" to hear the whole song performed by the musicians. (04:06)[more]
