# Maths Investigation : The relationship between the base number and the T-number

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Introduction For my course-work investigation I will be working out the relationship between the base number and the T-number. I will also be including two variables into my investigation to see how it can change the relationship between base number and T-number. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 31 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 41 42 44 43 45 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 To find out the formula and relationship I must firstly see if there is a pattern between one T-shape and another and any other patterns that could help me find the formula. I will also be displaying my work in graphs and tables. Number 1: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 31 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 41 42 44 43 45 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 The first T-shape I have indicated in red. ...read more.

70 = 110 110 / 5 = 22 Base Number = 22 Page: 5 Graph: A graph to show the relationship between the Base-Number and the T-Number From this graph we can see that the line of best fit goes through the Y=axis at -70 and that the T-number increases by 5 and the base number by 1. This backs up that the ratio between the T-number and base-number is 5:1, and that -70 is an important part of the equation I found out earlier. Variable One For my first variable I will be changing the size of my table and putting more numbers on a row to see if this has any affect on my formula or if it requires a totally different formula. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 Here we are doing what we did in the last section but finding out more about the grid size and what it is cable of doing. ...read more.

Conclusion

Now I am going to rotate the angle of the T-Shape another 90 degrees to see what difference it has on the formula or if we have to make a new formula for this T-shape. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 31 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 41 42 44 43 45 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 Base Number = 13 T-Number = 58 Unfortunately the 2nd formula to multiply the number of columns by 7 doesn't work when the T-shape is at this angle. Difference: 13 - 1 = 12 13 - 11 = 2 13 - 12 = 1 13 - 21 = - 8 Total = 12+2+1 - 8 = 7 So now the formula looks like this: T= 5b - 7 This is how the new formula works: 5*13 - 7 = 58 So by rotating the T-Shape by 90 degrees we are unable to use our 2nd rule to work out the last number in our formula, but rotating the T-Shape doesn't only still change the last number in the formula. ...read more.

number is the centre of rotation. Two other variables also need to be defined the amount to rotate by (i.e. 90, 180 or 270 degrees) and the direction I which to rotate (i.e. clockwise or anti-clockwise). To begin with, we shall start on out basic 9x9 grid, but cut the vertical height, as it will not be needed.
