Introduction

Introduction:

I'm going to investigate the difference between products on a number grid first I'm going to draw a box round four numbers then I will find the product of top left, bottom right numbers, and then I'm going to do the same with the top right, bottom right numbers in the box. I'll will then calculate the difference between these products. Not only I am going to investigate squares, but also rectangles, I'll use algebra to try and find a formula or a general rule that will give me this difference for any size shape.

The difference between 4930 and 4840 is 90 because  4930 - 4840 = 90.

58 x 85 = 4930
55 x 88 = 4840

I predicted that the difference for all 4 by 4 spares will be 90, I'll do another 4 by 4 grid to confirm that my prediction is correct.

The difference between 4930 and 4940 is 90 because 4930 - 4940 = 90.

54 x 81 = 4374
51 x 84 = 4284

This shows that my prediction is correct, that all 4 by 4 will equal to 90.

I'm going to draw a box round twenty five numbers then I will find the product of top left, bottom right numbers, and then I'm going to do the same with the top right, bottom right numbers.

The difference between 205 and 45 is 160 because 205 - 45 = 160.

5 x 41 = 205

The difference between 5605 and 5445 is 160 because 5605 - 5445 = 160.

59 x 95 = 5605

The difference between 3772 and 3612 is 160 because 3772 - 3612 = 160.

46 x 82 = 3772
42 x 86 = 3612

I predicted that the difference for all 5 by 5 spares will be 160, I'll do another 5 by 5 grid to confirm that my prediction is correct.

The difference between 1846 and 1596 is 250 because 1846 - 1596 = 250.

The difference between 306 and 56 is 250 because 306 - 56 = 250.

6 x 51 = 306

The difference between 3154 and 2904 is 250 because 3154 - 2904 = 250.

38 x 83 = 3154
33 x 88 = 2904

I predicted that the difference for all 6 by 6 spares will be 250, I'll do another 6 by 6 grid to confirm that my prediction is correct.

The difference between 1216 and 966 is 250 because 1216 - 966 = 250.

19 x 64 = 1216
