# Find the relationship between the T-total and the T-number.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

T-Totals

Aim:In this Investigation I will try and find the relationship between the T-total and the T-number. By changing the size of the grid and translating the T-shape to different positions in the grid I will find the pattern and rule for the T-Total and T-number.

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

The Total of the Numbers inside the T-shape is 1+2+3+11+20= 37

The number at the bottom is know as the T-number                T-Total

The T-number for this T-shape is 20

1) The relationship between the T-total and the T-number.

If you take the other Numbers in the T-shape away from the T-number you get a T-shape like this.

 T-19 T-18 T-17 T-9 T

## = 5T-63

2) Testing

For T-Total I will use the letter X

For T-Number I will use the letter T

So X = 5T-63

T=20

X=5x20-63

= 100-63

= 37

For this T-Shape the T-Number is 20 and the T-Total is 37

Here is the difference once more in the T-shape:

 T-19 T-18 T-17 T-9 T

This shows the difference T = T-number

5T + 7 = T-Total

5x70 + 7 = 357

Check

T-Number = 70

T-Total = 70+71+72+63+81 = 357

If we were to put the T-shape diagonally on the grid we find that the same rule applies gain apart from you cannot use the 2nd rule where you multiply the grid size by seven.

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

T-number = 33

T-Total = 7+17+26+25+33 = 109

Difference

33-25 = 8

33-7 = 26

33-17 = 16

33-27 = 6

Total = 56

5T+56 = T-total

5x33-56 = 109

the reverse shape should be changed to a plus.

T-Number = 13

T-Total = 19+29+39+21+13 = 121

5T + 56 = T-total

5x13+56 = 121

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

T-Number = 32

T-total = 32+42+52+60+44 = 230

Formula

5T+70 = T-total

Difference

42-32 = 10

52-32 = 20

60-32 = 28

44-32= 12

TOTAL = 70

5 x 32 + 70 = 230

If you reverse this procedure however the Formula now will be 5T-70

32-42 = -10

32-52 = -20

32-60 = -28

32-44 = -12

TOTAL = -70

5 x 32 -70 = 90

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81

As we can see from this table the difference between the t-number and the T-total goes up up four each time. So I have decided to put the difference in Algebraic terms: -

A = T-number

A + 17 = 37

A + 21 = 42

A + 25 = 47

A + 29 = 52

A + 33 = 57
