Page 15: Investigating Formula of rectangles inside a 10x10 grid. Number Grid Coursework. Initial investigation. In this assignment I will look at a 10x10 number grid. I will be looking at different equations and working out the formula for each. Example 1 2 11 12 Equation Total 1 x 12 12 2 x 11 22 I will also find the products and then minus them to get the difference. Equation Total 1 x 12 12 2 x 11 22 Difference 10 The difference is 10. I will investigate further to see if this is always the case for 2x2 squares. 2x2 squares Equation Total 12 x 23 276 13 x 22 286 Difference 10 12 13 22 23 Equation Total 59 x 70 4130 69 x 60 4140 Difference 10 59 60 69 70 81 82 91 92 Equation Total ...read more.

Using algebraic equations can also prove these results. x x+5 x+50 x+55 Expression 1 x(x+55)=x2 +55x Expression 2 (x+5) (x+50) = x2 +250x+5x+50 = x2 +55x+250 x2 +55x+250 - x2 +55 = 250 The formula for the 10x10 number grid is 10x(n-1) 2. Is this because it is a 10x10 grid? I am now going to investigate an 8x8 grid and see if the formula will be 8x(n-1). 8x8 Number 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 2x2 Squares 2 3 10 11 Equation Total 2 x 11 22 3 x 10 30 Difference 8 34 35 42 43 Equation Total 34 x 43 1462 35 x 42 1480 Difference 8 45 46 53 54 Equation Total 45 x 54 2430 46 x 53 2438 Difference 8 The difference is always 8 for the 2x2 number squares. ...read more.

These are the results. Square size Difference 2x2 10 2x3 20 2x4 30 2x5 40 You can clearly see that the difference goes up in 10. An example is the 2x4 squares. * 4-1=3 * 3x10=30 The formula for the rectangles is n-1x10 Using the formula n-1x10 I am going to predict the difference for a 2x6 square. n-1x10 * 6-1=5 * 5x10=50 Square size Difference 2x6 50 I am now going to investigate to see if my prediction is correct. 2x6 rectangles.
