T-Total Investigation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

GCSE Mathematics T-Total Introduction: I was given a sheet with various different sized girds on them. I was given the task to find the relationship between the T number and T-total on the 'T' shapes I had drawn on the grids. I was then to come up with a formula for them both that would work. ...read more.

442 104 457 107 472 I could see no relation between the T-total and T number by looking at the grid or the table below. I began to think about a formula for each T. I came up with a formula for each different sized grids as below: 9x12 grid N-19 N-18 N-17 N-9 5n-63 N 7x12 grid N-15 N-14 N-13 N-7 5n-63 N 8x12 ...read more.

Conclusion

I managed to find out from the information above that the formula for any grid is 5n-7g. I worked this out because in the formulas above if you divide the 5 (5n) by the number you are taking away from you always equal 7. With this information I came up with the formula; 5n-7g. The 'g' is the grid. The next thing I did was tostart ...read more.

    + 2 Then T = 2(5)( + 2(3)(5) + 3 T = 32 T = 83 If C = 5 and N = 5 Then T = 2(5)( + 2(5)(5) + 5 T = 105 These three checks are correct so I think my formula is working.

    My prediction for this question was wrong. 3) How many games would there be if there were six teams? If there were six teams there will be five matches each and thirty games in total. The rule is to count in extra girds; such as if there was five girds count in an extra ten matches.

    These are the simple mathematical operators that Excel can use. There are also other important formulae that can be used, such as IF and fixed cell referencing. These all come in use somewhere in calculating an electricity bill. I will explain the formulae later on in my write- up.

    that the T- Total is increased by 5 when it is translated to the right. The explanation that I put forth in the last grid of why the T- Total increases by 5 will always work on this problem. This is because you do not change the number of numbers in the T-shape.

    * I will then analyse and investigate these results before compare them to my previous ones to try and spot a pattern by comparing the 2 graphs together. I will then type up a sub conclusion of my findings. * I will now investigate the relationships and patterns of the T-number and the T-total in different sized grids e.g.

    we generalize this straight away using the same method's used in before for a 9x9 grid we achieve the formula: t = x - 8 + x - 17 + x - 16 + x - 15 t = 2x - 8 + 3x - 48 t = 5x -
