# T-total.I have taken the T-shape template from the example and moved it along the row from the T-number 20 to 26. I will then work out the T-total of each T-number by adding all the numbers in the T-shape.

Introduction

T-total Coursework

Part 1 – Investigate the relationship between the T-total and the             T-number

T-shape

 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

T-number

I have taken the T-shape template from the example and moved it along the row from the T-number 20 to 26. I will then work out the T-total of each T-number by adding all the numbers in the T-shape. The results were as follows:

 T-number T-total 20 27 21 42 22 47 23 52 24 57 25 52 26 67

I have found a pattern emerging, which is, as the T-number increases by 1 the T-total increases by 5. I will try and find out the relationship between the T-total and the other numbers in the T-shape.

 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 have chosen a random T-number of 60 and will try and find a relationship between all of the other numbers in the T-shape.

First I will try and take away all the other numbers from the T-number:

60-41 = 19

60-42 = 18

60-43 = 17

60-51 = 9

I will now try the same thing again but using a different T-number to see if the same pattern occurs:

 12 13 14 21 22 23 30 31 32

I will use the T-number

of 31

Middle

337

I have substituted the T-number into the equation

My formulae is correct as if I were to do the sum manually without using the formulae by adding 61+62+63+71+80 (all the numbers in the T-shape) it will equal 337 the same answer I got using my formulae. This proves that my formulae Is correct.

## Part 2 – Use grids of different sizes. Translate the T-shape to different positions. Investigate relationships between the T-total, the T-numbers and the grid size.

To investigate the relationship between the T-total, T-number and the grid size I will need to put the template into algebraic form.

I have changed the template into algebraic form. When I added the equations in the T-shape (Tn + Tn-g + Tn-2g-1 + Tn-2g + Tn-2g+1) and got the answer 5Tn – 7g, where Tn is the T-number and g is the grid size.

I will now try and see if the formulae are correct for different grid sizes.

In my grid I have chosen a random T-number of 40 and will find a formulae for rotation

 21 22 23 31 40

Tn-19 + Tn-18 + Tn-17 + Tn-

=                                        9 + Tn

= 5Tn-63

 33 40 41 42 51

Tn + Tn+1 + Tn+2 + Tn-7 +

=                                        Tn+11                                                                         = 5Tn+7

 40 49 57 58 59

Tn + Tn+9 + Tn+17 +

=                         Tn+18 + Tn+19

= 5Tn+63

 29 38 39 40 47

=                        Tn-11 + Tn-2 +Tn+7 + Tn-1

+ Tn

= 5Tn-7

I can see from this that:

When the T is at 0° the formulae will be 5T-7g

When the T is at 90° the formulae will be 5Tn+7

When the T is at 180° the formulae will be 5Tn+7g

When the T is at 240° the formulae will be 5Tn-7

I will now test my formulae to see if they are correct by using the formulae I found and seeing if I get the same results as I would doing it manually.

0°90°

5Tn-7g                                5Tn+7

5x40 – 7x9 =137                                5x40+7 =207

180°240°

5Tn+7g                                5Tn-7

5x40 + 7x9 =263                                5x40-7 = 193

Now I will do the calculations manually:

0°90°

Tn=40                                                Tn=40

Tn+21+22+23+31 = 137                 Tn+41+42+33+51 =207

180°240°

Tn=40                                Tn=40

Tn+49+57+58+59 =263                Tn+39+38+47+29 =193

I got the same results as I did by using my formulae this proves that my formulae is correct for rotation.
