Introduction

T-Total

In this investigation, I will be looking at T-shape drawn on different size grids. I will also be comparing and finding link and formulas between T-number and T-total. The different size grid will be: 10 by 10, 9 by 9, 8 by 8, 7 by 7, 6 by 6 and 5 by 5.

I will use grids of different sizes to try out transformation, combinations of transformations and reflection. I will also be making tables to identify formulae.

Here is the grid formula.

and therefore formula for 10 by 10 is 5n-70.

Here is the grid formula for 7 by 7 grid.

From the results above I can predict that the formula for a 6 by 6   and 5 by 5 will be 5n-7.

I was able to find the general formula by looking at grids above.

All t-total with t-number facing eastward will have the formula 5n-7.

I found out the general grid formula which will be:

The grid formula for 7 by 7 grid is:

image05.pngn + n + 7 + n + 13 + n + 14 + n + 15 = 5n+49

From using information above I am able to find the general formula for any T-shapes with T-number facing. The general formula is 5n+7g (g = grid size, e.g. for 6 by 6 grid the g will be 6).

 The general grid formula for this is: image06.png

4) This fourth experiments is about T-shapes with T-number facing west.

So the formula for 10 by 10 grid is 5n+7

Conclusion

6) conclusion

The general formula for all sides.

The formula for T-shapes with T-number facing southwards is 5n-7g. The general formula for T-shapes with T-number facing northwards is 5n+7g. The general formula for T-shapes with T-number facing eastwards is 5n-7. The general formula T-shapes with T-number facing westwards is 5n+7. You can see from this results that when formula’s of vertically opposite T-shapes are nearly the same except it will be plus or an minus, e.g. the T-shapes with formula’s 5n-7g and 5n+7 are vertically opposite and the only difference is the plus and minus.

Look at these T-shapes I have only named two boxes the T-number and the on the opposite end, from I research I can say that whenever x is bigger than n there will be a plus sign in the formula, if n is bigger than x then there will be a minus sign in the formula. E.g. the T-shape with T-number facing southwards

The T-number is 22 and x is 2, the T-number is bigger than x and the formula is 5n-7g.
