Number grids

Introduction

In this assignment I am going to investigate about the number grid. I am going to use two different types of formula to find out the correct answers one is numerical formula and second is algebra. In numerical way I am going to multiply the top left number with right bottom number and the top right number with bottom left number and than I am going to find the difference between the products. The difference of product is going to be same as the size of a grid (in width) in 2 x 2 size. In 3 x 3 size the difference going to be four times bigger than a grid (width) size. I will also use the 5 x 5 grid, 6 x 6 grid and 7 x 7 grid to see how it works. E.g. 5 x 5 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 20 x 24 = 480 19 x 25 = 475 Difference between these products is 5. In algebra I am going to use different formula to find out the correct answer. This is the formula that I am going to use: n = Top left corner n + 1 = Top right corner n + 5 = Bottom left corner n + 6 = Bottom right corner (n + 1) (n + 5) - (n) (n + 6) n2 + 5n + n + 5 - n2 - 6n (n2 cancel out with - n2, 5n + n cancel out with - 6n) 5 left over This is the product difference of 2 x 2 in a 5 x 5 grid. 8 x 8 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 ...read more.

    = 40 When finding the general formula for any number (n), both answers begin with the equation n2+22n, which signifies that they can be manipulated easily. Because the second answer has +40 at the end, it demonstrates that no matter what number is chosen to begin with (n), a difference of 40 will always be present.
