        The geographical areas mentioned contain general information about the damage, injuries and fatalities caused in particular regions.  In The Times  article, the areas and incidents are listed in geographical order, from north to south of Britain. Whereas in The Sun, there seems to be no particular order, as it jumps from Bournemouth, to Tyneside then to Essex.

One unusual comparison between the newspapers revealed that whilst The Times used the term  lorry , The Sun used the term HGV which is the more usual formal term for this vehicle and tabloids are expected to use informal terms.  This is shown in the

use of the abbreviation  Met. Office  whereas The Times refers to it by the full title  The Meteorological Office .  

Furthermore, the article in The Sun is poorly constructed.  This is shown by the use of a sub title reading   Miracle  followed directly by a sentence describing a man being crushed by a tree.  

        There is a similarity with the information about the victims of the storms.

Conclusion

Overall, the articles present the same facts and the same information because it is their job to present the news to their readers but each has their own way of doing it.

I think the article in The Sun is more effective because  it puts the message across clearly instead of distracting you with barely related sub-stories.  It may deliver the facts in a dramatised way but it still gets the message across and overall is easier to read.

    formulas for shapes made of hexagons, I cannot think of any other regular shapes to move on to. When I say regular shapes, I am referring to those shapes for which their order of rotational symmetry is equal to their number of sides, and all their sides are the same length.

    am pretty sure that they will work on all other corresponding values of P, D and Q - there is no reason for them not to. The only possible situation where my formulas might fail me is where the value of D is 0, as when D is multiplied or

    So instead I used squared paper. Below I have laid out tables of P and D for all the values of Q that I drew out. I have only looked at 3 different values of Q, as I do not think there is any need for more.

    However if I were to change to formula to P-2-2D, then 12-2-10=0, which is incorrect. Now I shall test this with all different values of P and D, but with a constant T of 20. I will substitute P and D for their numerical values in the T=20 table, and use them in the above formula (P-2+2D=T)

    Although T is constant in the table, I have put it into each row, as it will be incorporated into the formula that I hope to find. I am predicting that there will be straightforward correlation between P, D and T.

    I am predicting that there will be straightforward correlation between P, D and T. I also expect that as the value of P increases, the value of D will decrease. I say this because a circle is the shape with the largest area for its perimeter, and all the area is bunched together.
