# I am going to investigate the relationship between the T-Totals and T-numbers when the T-shape is translated in different sizes of grids

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

T-Totals

I am going to investigate the relationship between the T-Totals and T-numbers when the

T-shape is translated in different sizes of grids. A good way of showing translations is by using vectors.

To give you an insight of how the grids look I have used 3 different grid sizes which I will be investigating further on. In each column of the grids we  see that every time 9,8 or 7 is added to the number and it follows this sequence and the numbers on a row when added contain, (9 by 9 grid)  81,(8 by 8 grid) 64 or(7 by 7 grid), 49 numbers.

row

The T-shape drawn on grids will look like this

This is called the T-Number,

I will refer this as N

When adding all the number together we will get the T-Total

I will refers this as T.

In the next table I have calculated the T and N which gave me the following results:

 T 37 42 47 52 N 20 21 22 23

We can see from this information that every time

Middle

N

5 * 23 =  115         115 – 63 = 52

This has proven that my formula is correct.

In the next section I will be translating a different size of grid which will be

8 by 8 grid.

Which would give me the following results

 T 34 39 44 49 N 18 19 20 21

I will find the formula as I did before

(N-10) +  (N-1) +  (N-2) + (N-3) = T

18-10= 8

18- 2=16

18- 1=17

18- 3=15   +

Total = 56

5N-56= T

5*18= 90                90-56=34

This has proven my formula is correct but lets check again by moving the T-shape I called the T-shape with the T-number 16 = A and the T-shape with the T-number 18=B

Vector AB=

5*20= 100                100-56=44

Yes, the formula is correct

As you see both grids that I have investigated are in the 7 times table and I predict that the following 7 by 7 grid  will be 7*7= 49. This gives me the following formula

5N-(7*grid size)=T

Which will give me the following results

 T 31 36 41 46 N 16 17 18 19

I will use the same method as before to find the formula.

(N-9) +  (N-1) +  (N-2) + (N-3) = T

16-9=  7

16-1=15

16-2=14

16-3=13        +

Total = 49

This

Conclusion

As you see above every time 100+10 is added to the T-total when you using this formula you can also see that T-number 21, 22, 23, 24 of the formula 10N-63=T is different as it does not follow the pattern of the formula as you see t-number 21 of the f 5N-63=T is does not get 142 but 147 because it skips one place as we are using the formula 10N-63 = T.

In conclusion I have found out different ways to translate and solve T-shapes in different positions with different grid sizes. I have solved the T-shapes by using a formula which slightly changes in different circumstances the formula is     5N-(7*G)=T which has linked the relationship between the T-Total, T-Number and the Grid size.
