As you see when t-number goes up 1 the t-total goes up 5

So, ratio of t-number and t-total is 1 : 5

Another way to work out the t-total is by formula

n-19

n-18

n-17

n-9

n

             So, total=n+(n-9)+(n-17)+(n-18)+(n-19)

                   =5n-63

          So,   t=5n-63, when t is

Conclusion

Now here is an example of using the formula ( 5n – 63 = t-total )

5 * 25 – 63 = t-total

5 * 25 – 63 = 62

Check the answer

t-total = 6 + 7 + 8 + 16 + 25

=62

  1. The t-shape

    The formula starts with 5* the t-number this is because there is a rise in the t-total by 5 for every t-number. We then -63 which do by working out the difference between the t-number and another number in the t-shape.
