Introduction

Relationship between T-total and T-number

I am going to investigate T-totals and T-numbers on a 9x9 grid.

The T-total is when a T-shape is placed on a grid and the numbers in the T-shape are added up to give a total.

My aim is to find a relationship between T-totals and T-numbers.

I am going to translate the T-shape 5 times on a 9x9 grid and then do the same on various sized grids.

T total = 1 + 2 + 3 + 11 + 20 = 37 [All numbers added together]image30.pngimage22.png

T number = 20 [number at the bottom of the T shape]

I am going to translate the T shape across the 9x9 grid.

image51.pngimage26.pngimage30.pngimage25.pngimage62.jpgimage22.png

T total = 1 + 2 + 3 + 11 + 20 = 37

T number = 20

T total = 2 + 3 + 4 + 12 + 21 = 42

T number = 21image06.png

T total = 3 + 4 + 5 + 13 + 22 = 47

T number = 22image11.png

I have translated the T shape across the 9x9 grid 3 times. So far I have noticed that when the T number increases by one, the T total increases by 5.

Middle

T total = 10 + 11 + 12 + 20 + 29 = 82

T number = 29

image33.pngimage23.pngimage32.pngimage29.pngimage31.pngimage62.jpg

T total = 19 + 20 + 21 + 29 + 38 = 127

T number = 38

I have noticed that as the T number increases by 9, the T total increases by 45. I am going to translate two more T shapes onto the grid to test my prediction.

image36.pngimage29.pngimage35.pngimage31.pngimage34.pngimage62.jpg

T total = 28 + 29 + 30 + 38 + 47 = 162

T number = 47

image62.jpg

T total = 37 + 38 + 39 + 47 + 56 = 217image37.pngimage38.pngimage31.png

T number = 56

I have tested my prediction and I can see that it is correct. As the T number increases by 9, the T total increases by 45.

Conclusion

3x3 grid

image62.jpg

T total = T + T-3 + T-7 + T-6 + T-5

        = 5T – 21

CHECK:

image62.jpg

T total = 5 x 8 – 21 = 19

T = 1 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 8 = 19

I have found the formula for various sized grids. I have tested my formulas and they all work to find the T total.

I noticed that each time the grid size is decreased by 1, the number you take away from 5T increases. [Increases because it is a –minus]

I am now going to find a formula for all grid sizes.

GENERALISING

I have found the formula for different grid sizes and have also found information for each grid.

image62.jpg

T stands for the T number

G stands for the grid size

image62.jpg

        T – (2G-1)
        = 20 – (2x9 –1)
        = 3

T NUMBER

T – G
= 20 – 9
= 11

T-total= T+T-G+T-2G+T-2G+1+T-2G-1

               =5T-7G

    However, T-shapes within the 3D cube would be very difficult to identify, and the order of placement of the cubes can vary. This leads to complications but the differences in pattern would still be related to the width of the cube, so the pattern would be similar to the first four investigations.
