Opposite Corners

Introduction

Opposite corners are really simple. Basically, you choose any number between 1 – 100. The only numbers that you won’t be able to choose are the numbers along the bottom row (91 – 100) and the ones running down the right hand side (the multiples of 10). Look at the green lines on the diagram and you’ll see that only rectangles can be made, and as they are only half squares, image02.pngimage00.pngimage03.pngimage39.pngimage19.pngimage29.pngimage02.pngimage11.pngimage04.pngimage11.pngimage04.pngimage03.pngimage08.png

The difference is 40. Now I need to test out my prediction:

The prediction was correct, the difference is 40.

So that means that if you want

Conclusion

Square number         (w) _        Formulaimage37.png

2                                (wx10) –10  = difference

3                                (wx20) – 20 = difference

4                                (wx30) – 30 = difference

5                                  (wx40) – 40 = difference

I predict that a 5x5 square will have a formula of:

(wx40) – 40

This is because I have made a formula to work out the general formula, and tested it out:

w[10(w – 1)] – [10(w – 1)]

image38.png

w – 1

 Square number = 2 (w)

  1. – 1 = 1

 x 10 = 10

x 2 = 20

– 1 = 1

x 10 = 10

20 – 20 = 10

divided by 2 – 1 = 10

All you do is write out this equation: (wx__) - __ and replace the two blank spaces with the number that you have found

That proves to be correct, so now I will see if the theory for the 5x5 square is correct.

I predicted that the formula would be:

 (wx40) – 40 = difference

5[10(5 – 1)] – [10(5 – 1)]

image38.png

5 – 1

5(4x10) – (4x10)

40x5 = 200 – 40 = 160

160 divided by 4 = 40

The formula proves to be correct.

    But can I apply g to the equation as well? Earlier on in the investigation G represented the length of the grid and it was common in the bottom 2 corners. In the case of a 2 x 3 cutout on a 10 x 10 grid G would be equal to 10.
