Introduction

T Shape Coursework

9 Grid

My teacher gave me a candidatesheet if I add up the total in the T shape I get:

 1 2 3 11 20

T Total=1+2+3+11+20=37

20x5-63=37

I am now going to draw 3 more T shape moving to the right across one on a 9 grid

 2 3 4 12 21

T Total= 2+3+4+12+21=42

21x5-63=42

 3 4 5 13 22

T Total=3+4+5+13+22=47

22x5-63=47

 4 5 6 14 23

T Total=4+5+6+14+23=52

23x5-63=52

 Sum Total Increase 1+2+3+11+20 37 2+3+4+12+21 42 5 3+4+5+13+22 47 5 4+5+6+14+23 52 5

From the table I have noticed that when that when you move a T shape across each time all the numbers go up by one, as they are five numbers the total goes up by five.

I am now to investigate the total by moving the T shape down the grid

 1 2 3 11 20

T Total= 1+2+3+11+20=37

20x5-63=37

 10 11 12 20 29

T Total= 10+11+12+20+29=82

29x5-63=82

 19 20 21 29 38

T Total= 19+20+21+29+38=127

38x5-63=127

 28 29 30 38 47

T Total=28+29+30+38+47=172

47x5-63=172

I have noticed that each time I move the T shape down the grid each number increases by nine, as they are five numbers the total increase by 45.

 Sum Total Increase 1+2+3+11+20 37 10+11+12+20+29 82 45 19+20+21+29+38 127 45 28+29+30+38+47 172 45

From the table I have noticed that when that when you move a T shape across each time all the numbers go up by one, as they are five numbers the total goes up by five.

I am now to investigate the total by moving the T shape down the grid

I have noticed that each time I move the T shape down the grid each number increases by eight, as they are five numbers the total increase by 40.

10 Grid

 t-21 t-20 t-19 t-10 T

T total= (t) + (t-21) + (t-20) + (t-19) + (t-10)

=5t-70

 1 2 3 12 22

T Total= 1+2+3+12+22=40

22x5=110-70=40

I am now going to draw 3 more T shape moving to the right across one on the grid

 2 3 4 13 23

T Total= 2+3+4+13+23=45

23x5=115-70=45

 3 4 5 14 24

T Total=3+4+5+14+24=50

24x5=120-70=50

 4 5 6 15 25

T Total=4+5+6+15+25=55

From the table I have noticed that when that when you move a T shape across each time all the numbers go up by one, as they are five numbers the total goes up by five.

Conclusion

t-20

t-19

t-10

T

T total= (t) + (t-10) + (t-20) + (t-19) + (t-21)

=5t-70

(This only works on a 10 grid)

9 Grid

 t-19 t-18 t-19 t-9 T

T total= (t) + (t-9) + (t-18) + (t-17) + (t-19)

=5t-63

(This only works on a 9 grid)

8 Grid

 t-17 t-16 t-15 t-8 T

T total= (t) + (t-8) + (t-16) + (t-15) + (t-17)

=5t-56

(This only works on a 8 grid)

7 Grid

 t-15 t-14 t-13 t-7 T

T total= (t) + (t-7) + (t-14) + (t-13) + (t-15)

=5t-49

(This only works on a 7 grid)

I have noticed that the algebra changes because the grid size is different each time.

I call the size ‘g’ I can work out some algebra for each box.

 t-2g-1 t-2g t-2g+1 t-g T

(This is now a ‘g’ grid)

T total= (t) + (t-g) + (t-2g) + (t-2g-1) + (t-2g+1)

=5t-7g

So to work out the total of a t shape anywhere on a grid I can multiply the t number by 5 and subtract 7 lots of the grid size.

I will now check this on this T shape a 10 grid with 26 as the T number.

 5 6 7 16 26

T total= 5+6+7+16+26 = 60      T number= 26

T total= 5x26=130-70=60          Grid size= 10
