T-Totals

  • Investigate the relationship between the T-Total and the T-Number.
  • Use grids of different sizes. Translate the T-Shapes to the different positions. Investigate relationships between the T-Total, the T-Number and the grid sizes.
  • Use grids of different sizes again. Try other transformations and combinations of transformations. Investigate the relationships between the T-Total, the T-Number, the grid size and the transformations.

5 x 20 = 100

 100 – 37 = 63

The difference between the T-Totals is 5 this makes the first part of the formula: 5T

To work out the second part takes the T-Number and multiplies by the difference.

5T - 63

Relationships and Master Formula Working Out

Formulae’s

9 x 9 Grids: 5T - 63

8 x 8 Grids: 5T - 56

7 x 7 Grids: 5T – 49

6 x 6 Grids: 5T – 42

  • Smaller the Grid Size the less you have to take away from the T-Total
  • The Larger the grid size the more you have to take away from the T-Total
  • All The Formulas have gaps of 7

    (Ex. 63 – 56 = 7. 56 – 49 = 7. 49 – 42 = 7.)

I found out that the master formula is 5T-(7xG)

I got the 5 by looking at the differences of the number.

The T stands for the T-Number (which is always 5; as there are 5 squares in the T; and it is current throughout.)
