What is the missing piece to this pattern? Got it as a quiz at work - no one here knows what it is!
I see a pattern as a tool to make cookies
So we need to find a new cookie type.
At begin I saw there wasn't the one white dot and the white dot pattern in the center only.
As I looked closer at all patterns I can say that all can be rotated to change the black dots position in order to give a different perspective to the cookie lovers in order to sell them.
As I write this answer I see second pattern of first and second row are the same.That maybe,maybe not ,can confirm the rotation rule.
My guess is
I eliminated each time a black dot and created different patterns and compared with the existing one to get those
