Investigate the relationship between the T-total and the T-number.

Investigation

Introduction

In this investigation I’m going to investigate the relationship between the T-total and the T-number. What I’m going to do is use different sizes of grids for example 9*9, 8*8, 7*7, 6*6, 5*5 and 4*4. To compare the answers I will have to investigate each grid for a few times for example 9*9 grid will be investigated for at list three times. I will have to make predictions for each of the grids. I will also have to translate and compare different positions of the T-shape and the T-numbers. After I have finished the investigation I will then evaluate and compare the relationships between different sizes of grids.

The first grid I will investigate will be the 9*9 grid.

As you have seen from the above diagram and from the diagram on the first page as well the second page, the Tn answer is the same, Tn = 5n-63, so my prediction on this was correct and in this case it also makes it clear that all the other 8*8 grids will produce the same answers.

Tn = 5n-28

As you have seen from the above diagram and from the diagram on the first page the Tn answer is the same, Tn = 5n-28 so my prediction on the third diagram is that I think the Tn algebra will still remain the same.

Here is another 4*4 grid I will use the similar method just like the one on the first page and second page. There is no difference between them apart from the T-numbers in the T-shape.

                                                            Tn = 5n-28

As you have seen from the above diagram and from the diagram on the first page as well the second page, the Tn answer is the same, Tn = 5n-28, this perfectly makes my prediction correct and it also proves that all the 4*4 grids will have the same answers no matter what the numbers.
