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.

general formula is correct I am going to test it on two other 5-step grids. I have chosen grid sizes 23 and 33 Number Grids. From the processes I have gone through, I have devised an algebraic formula which when I tested, in each case gave me positive results for every 5-step stair in any grid size.

We continue to proceed with the exercise to complete our formula (The General Formula). In the algebra equation we need to include the value of the grid size, i.e. is it a 4x4 [4] or 16x16 [16] represented as algebra to give us the total of the numbers added together.

15 8 9 1 2 3 Stair number=1 Whereas stair total= 1+2+3+8+9+15= 38 Here we can see that stair number=2 Therefore, stair total= 2+3+4+9+10+16=44 Here we can see that stair number=3 Therefore, stair total= 3+4+5+10+11+17= 50 Stair number (n) = 4 Therefore, stair total= 4+5+6+11+12+18 = 56 The following table shows the stair total (T)
