Introduction

Opposite Corner

Candidate Sheet

Opposite corner

Firstly i will investigate the difference between the products of the numbers in oppsite corners of any rectangle that can be drawn in a 100-sqaure grid. After that i will choose randomly some rectangles from the 100-sqaure grids. After that i will mutiply the top right corner with bottom left corner (which will be coloured in blue) then i will multiply the bottom right corner with the top left corner (which will be coloured in yellow). After that i will find the answer then i will subtract the smallest number with biggest number, which will give me the answer of the opposite corner.

This is a diagram of a 100-sqaure grid.

    In this piece course work I am going to investigate opposite corners in grids

    3 star(s)

    I will multiply and subtract the opposite corners now. 6 7 13 14 10 11 17 18 33 34 40 41 As you can see from my three examples they all have a difference of 7. The main grid size is the same of the difference, 7. All ready I can start to see a pattern.

  2. Marked by a teacher

    To find a relationship between the opposite corners in various shapes and sizes.

    Ten by Ten (3x3) I am now going investigate squares that are 3 by 3 and see if I get the same sort of results. (i.e. a predictable outcome) I will do this using the same system as above. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 12 13 14 15

  1. Investigation of diagonal difference.

    But will this formula work when the length of the grid is less than the height? I will now look at a 7 x 8 grid and a 7 x 7 grid to investigate this further as there may be a relationship between the two as with 8 x 7 grids and 8 x 8 grids.

  2. Investigate the differences between products in a controlled sized grid.

    between all the examples of 5 by 5 boxes in a 10 by 10 grid. The difference is 160. I am now going to try and find an algebraic equation to show the difference in a 5 by 5 box in a 10 by 10 grid.

  1. Investigate the difference between the products of the numbers in the opposite corners of ...

    = 8910 8910 - 8900 = 10 I can now also see that no matter where the shape is on the diagonal axis the difference remains the same. I will now try a random position on the grid to finalise my results so far.
