Do the same thing with the bottom left and top right numbers in the square. Calculate the difference between these numbers. I N V E S T I G A T E!!!! I am going to work out a formula to work out the difference between the top right and bottom left numbers, and top left and bottom right numbers. I will work out the difference to many different sized number squares with in the grid. I will change the shape of the number pattern and I will also change the size of the number grid itself. 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 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 This is the original number grid. ...read more.

Conclusion

90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 And this rule, Using the following rule: Find the product of the top left number and the bottom right number in the square. Do the same thing with the bottom left and top right numbers in the square. Calculate the difference between these numbers. I need to find a general formula. The width of the number pattern subtract 1, multiply by the grid size, multiplied by the length subtract 1. (W-1)grid size(L-1) W = the width of the number pattern L = the length of the number pattern The grid size = the size of the number grid I am now going to use this formula and make a prediction and then test it to see if I am correct. I am going to use a number grid which is 10 by 10 grid. 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 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 (6-1)10(6-1) (5x10)5 50 x 5 = 250 I predict that the difference for a 6 by 6 pattern is 250. 23 24 25 26 27 28 33 34 35 36 37 38 43 44 45 46 47 48 53 54 55 56 57 58 63 64 65 66 67 68 73 74 75 76 77 78 23 x 78 = 1794 > 250 28 x 73 = 2044 I can see that my prediction was correct, I can see that my general formula is justified. 1 Simon Bedwell 11Q ...read more.
