In my Research I have found that in all of my T’s if you take the number above the T-number and add 9 you will get the same number as the T-number, and if you take the one above that and add 18 you get the T-number, and if you take the one to the left of that one and add 19 you get the T-number, and if you take the number furthest to the right and add 17 that also adds up to the same amount as the T-number.

 +19=T +18=T +17=T +9=T T

To find out the formula I have used algebra.

In my Research I have found that all you have to do is change the minus sign in the formula to add and I can find out the formula for the upside down T’s

 T +9=T +17=T +18= +19=T

To find out the formula I have used algebra

T-total=T+T+9+T+18+T+17+T+19=5T+635T+63=T-total

In my research I have found that as you decrease the grid size there is no change to the formula. I will therefore only do three grid sizes to prove my point.

Conclusion

 +7=T T +1=T +2=T +11=T

To find out the formula I have used algebra

T-total=T+T+1+T+7+T+2+T+11=5T+7                                             5T+7=T-total

Final all round Formula:

After all my extensive research I have found the formula that will change any T- number in to it’s T-total…

T-total = T+ (T-9) + (T-18) + (T-19) + (N-17)

=5T-63
