Introduction

As part of my coursework I have chosen number grid.

According to the task, I followed four steps in 10   10 grid

  1. A box is drawn round four numbers.
  2. Find the product of the top left number and the bottom right number.
  3. Do the same with the top right and bottom left number.
  4. Calculate the difference between these numbers.

The results are noted in the table below.

From the worked examples I find that the difference between the product found for the diagnol square in the 10      10  is 10.

From these results I predict that the difference between the next products in a diagnol square of 2    2 will be 10in 10    10 grid.

The results show that the difference between the products in 4    4 square is 90.It is five times to the difference in 3    3 square.I predict that it will be true for next squares in 4    4 square in 10    10 grid.

    Data Analysis From the tables (a)-(e), it is possible to see that with a 2x2 box, the difference of the two products always equals z: the width of the grid. When plotted on a graph (Fig 2.6), the relationship is clearly visible as a perfect positive correlation.
