# Number Grids Investigation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Sophie Johnson 10A6 Maths Coursework Number Grids The diagram shows a 10*10 grid, a rectangle has been shaded on the 10*10 grid. I will find the diagonal difference between the products of the numbers in the opposite corners of the rectangle. 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 Opposite numbers in the rectangle are:- 54 and 66 56 and 64 56*64=3584 54*66=3564 .�. The Diagonal Difference = 3584 - 3564 = 20 Study I have studied some more 3*2 rectangles and I have found this:- 12 13 14 22 23 24 74 75 76 84 85 86 27 28 29 37 38 39 So from this I conclude that all 3*2 rectangles have a diagonal difference of 20. After doing this I wondered if this theory would work if I used a 2*3 rectangle. ...read more.

�*10 A SMALLER GRID Here I am going to look at a 9*9 grid. Because the grid is smaller the numbers will move around. 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 I will begin by doing some 3*2 rectangles 21 22 23 30 31 32 57 58 59 66 67 68 So I conclude that all 3*2 squares on a 9*9 grid have a diagonal difference of 18. I have tested the other way by using a 2*3 rectangle. 1 2 10 11 19 20 40 41 49 50 58 59 So all 3*2 and 2*3 squares have a diagonal difference of 18. I will study more rectangles on a 9*9grid and then draw up a table. Here is a 4 * 2 rectangle 40 41 42 43 49 50 51 52 69 70 71 72 78 79 80 81 So I conclude that all 4*2 rectangles on a 9*9 grid have a diagonal difference of 27. ...read more.

Conclusion

(R-1)*(C-1)*10 Square on a 10*10grid (X-1)*(X-1)*10 Rectangle on a 9*9 grid (R-1)*(C-1)*9 Square on a 9*9grid (X-1)*(X-1)*9 So I predict the formula for an 8*8 grid will be Rectangle: -(R-1)*(C-1)*8 Square: - (X-1)*(X-1)*8 I will test this. 3*2 rectangle on an 8*8 grid I use my formula to predict that: - (3-1)*(2-1)*8 =2*1*8 =16 2 3 4 10 11 12 My prediction is right. So using my formula I predict that a 3*3 square on an 8*8 grid will be (X-1)*(X-1)*8 (3-1)*(3-1)*8 =2*2*8 =32 46 47 48 54 55 56 62 63 64 So my prediction and formula are also right. A pattern A pattern has shown up in the formulas so I made this table: - Grid rectangle Formula 10*10 (R-1)*(C-1)*10 9*9 (R-1)*(C-1)*9 8*8 (R-1)*(C-1)*8 7*7 (R-1)*(C-1)*7 6*6 (R-1)*(C-1)*6 5*5 (R-1)*(C-1)*5 Grid Square Formula 10*10 (X-1)*(X-1)*10 9*9 (X-1)*(X-1)*9 8*8 (X-1)*(X-1)*8 7*7 (X-1)*(X-1)*7 6*6 (X-1)*(X-1)*6 So on a 6*6 grid I would expect a 3*2 rectangle to be: - (3-1)*(2-1)*6 =2*1*6 =12 So 8 9 10 14 15 16 Also a 3*3 square on a 6*6 grid would be: - (X-1)*(X-1)*6 => (3-1)*(3-1)*6 =2*2*6 =24 3 4 5 9 10 11 15 16 17 Both predictions and formulas are correct so I conclude that the overall formula is: - R= rows C= columns X= square N� G= grid Rectangle: - (R-1)*(C-1)*G ...AND...

D = 10(n - 1)2 I can test this by substituting 2 in for n, and if the answer is 10, which was the answer when I proved that the difference between the products of opposite corners in all 2 x 2 squares equals 10, my formula is correct.
