Introduction:

In this project I am going to examine the time taken for a whole tray of tomatoes to go bad when a single bad tomato is put in a particular position.

I will see how this time changes when I vary the size of the tray and alter the starting position. I will start with a small tray and gradually the size of the tray will be larger and also the positions will move from corner to corner, side to side and so on. At the end of this project I want to be able to have a formula which will tell me how long it would take a bad tomato to spread over cover the whole tray when the first bad tomato is placed in a curtain position in the tray.

Part 1

The diagram below represents the look of a tray with 16 tomatoes in it. The number 1 is there to show where the first bad tomato began.
