The shape that I will be investigating is a simple stair shape. I will fist place this shape at random points on the grid and add up the totals of the numbers in the square. The position of the shape on the grid will be known by the number in the square at the top of the number stair. For example S45. Now I will work out the totals of the numbers in the number stair from random positions in the grid. ...read more.

Conclusion

So if I take S91we know that S91= 91 X 81 82 X+10 X+11 71 72 73 X+20 X+21 X+22 I will add up the X's and the numbers and this should form an equation that I can test out. 6x-76 If this equation is correct, when I put in a familiar stair total suck as S91, which we all know is 470, and then the two answers will be the same. 6x91-76=470 Now I have found an equation that can be used to find the stair total just by using the stair number. ...read more.

    algebra theory used to calculate the formula the total value of the squares can be found. This theory has been put to the test using a 10x10, 11x11 and 12x12 gird squares. The results are definite and consistent, proving the theory to be accurate and reliable.
