# maths grid coursework

Extracts from this document...

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.

 16 26 15 25

16x25=400    400-390=10

15x26=390

 59 60 49 50

59x50=2950  2950-2940=10

49x60=2940

results

 Side in squares Difference between answers 9 squared Difference between answers 10 squared difference 2x3 18 20 2 2x4 27 30 3 2x5 36 40 4 3x2 18 20 2 3x4 54 60 6 3x5 72 80 8 4x2 27 30 3 4x3 54 60 6 4x5 108 120 12

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.

The criterion of why I haven't explained what B stands for is because I haven't found it yet. Nevertheless using the annotated notes on the formula my formula would look like this now: > 6N =6n x 1= 6 > 6+b=50 Now I would need to find the value of b in order to use my formula in future calculations.
