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.
