Introduction

2. Translate the T-shape to different positions.

Using a grid of any size, I will investigate how the original T-number is related to the T-total of the translated T-shape. First, I will use

From this table I can see a pattern. It shows that when you take an Original T-total (37) and add on 5 times the vector a (3) you get the final T-total. In equation form this is:
Final T-total = Original T-total + (5xMovement in Horizontal Direction)
However this equation requires us to know the T-total In advance when we only know the T-number. So I can substitute a previous equation for the Original T-total (5n-7g). This gives me the final equation of:
Final T-total = (5n-7g)+(5a)

Therefore, I have a final formula of:
(T=Final t-total) (n=original T-number) (a=the horizontal direction on the vector)

T = (5n-7g)+5a

    For every nine the Tn goes up, the Tt goes up by forty-five. We can understand that the numbers go up nine times as much vertically, than they do horizontally, because there are 9 rows in the grid, and the numbers increase horizontally by one.

    122 +77 As you can see from the table above, the 90� rotated T23 has a T-total of 122, a '+77' increment. I will now try this on another T-shape to see if I will get the same '+77' increment.

    I predict this because the T-number is increasing by 1 and the T-Total is increasing by 5. From my findings I concluded a formula linking the T-Number and T-Total which is T=5n-63. I got this formula when I seen that the difference between each T-Total is 5 so the formula

    a positive figure its T-Total is less than the original T-Total If we table these results along with all the horizontal translation results from 41 to 44 (for v), we should easily see a pattern (on a grid width of 9), also adding a column for the difference between the number in that column and the once below.
