  • A box is drawn around 4 Numbers
  • Find the product of the top left number and bottom right number in this box
  • Do the same with the top right and bottom left numbers
  • Calculate the difference between these products

For my piece of coursework as shown above I will need to work out the product of the numbers multiplied from the top left and bottom right numbers and the same with the top right and bottom left numbers and example is shown below:

To work out the Product I will need to multiply 12 by 23 and 13 by 22

12 x 23 = 276

To work out the difference I will

   need to subtract 286 from 276 :

13 x 22 = 286276 – 286 = 10

I will now start my coursework with a 10 x 10 grid and then develop it further by doing different shaped grids and sizes also I will show that my coursework is coming along successfully by working out the algebraic equation which should work for a certain sized grid.
