Introduction

Maths coursework

i am going to investigate a pattern by taking a squares and rectangles and multiplying the top corners.

For squares 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5

for rectangles 2x3,24,2x5,3x2,3x4,3x5,4x2,4x3,4x5

 i will be doing this in a nine squared grid and a ten squared grid  

after my results if there is a pattern i will make a formula to describe the pattern

2x2 squares on 10 squared grid.

With these results we can say that the formula is when m is the shortest side and n is the  longest side  (m-1)(n-1)x 9

 example 4x5

4= m 5=n   4-1x5-1=3x4=12  12x9=108

if a rectangle had a side of   14x45  14=m 45=n 14-1x45-1=13x44= 572

572 x 9=5148 would be the difference of the corners timed together  

evaluation

i believe i could have improved this experiment by using more resources and different shaped grids such as triangles to test my formula also i should have tested  each grid number  at least 4 times and used different sized grids.

    40, which, when divided by 10 (the width), is 4, 2 x 2. So I need both my brackets to equal 2, as I am finding the difference between the products of opposite corners in a square. I will try multiplying m and n by p as well as subtracting p: So: D = w (pm - p)

    for any square in a 10x10 grid is 10(L-1) 2 . These results and steps shown above all make certain that this is proof and I will demonstrate this with some examples of different sized squares in a 10x10 grid. For a 2x2 square D= 10(L-1) 2 D= 10(2-1)

    In order to check if my prediction is right I would have to again add up the numbers in the 3-step stair shape. 23 14 15 5 6 7 5+6+7+14+15+23 = 70 This proves my Prediction to be correct. Therefore I'm able to find the total number of the 3-step stair by just adding 6.
