T-Total Investigation

Aim

To find a link between the t-number and the t-total by translating the position of the t-shape on a 9 x 9 grid.

I.e. in the grid above, the t-number is 20.

T-Total

The T-total is the number after adding up the contents of the t-shape. In this case, it’s 37, because 1+2+3+11+20 = 37.

T-Shape

The t-shape is a shape of the portion of numbers to use. It’s been highlighted on the grid for you.

I have noticed that the difference between the t-number and the number above it is always 9. This is also the width of the square.

1+2+3+12+22 = 40

Let’s try my earlier discovered method.

(5x22) – (7x10) =

110 – 70 = 40

Therefore…

5N - 7W = t-total

    10 by 10 I can now explain this formula using algebra and so therefore this will help me find the rule for a 3by2 T on any size grid. If G = the grid size - in this case G would be 10 because I am using a 10by10 grid.

    Therefore nth term= 9n+11=20 At the T-Total, the common difference is 45. n= 1 2 3 4 T= 37 82 127 172 For example take 37 and 82 subtract them (82-37) and you get 45. Therefore the formula of this is 45n � C = T-Total/ 45n � C = 37, 45-37=8.

    This tells you the formula is based on N�. The second difference is 4 and you divide this by 2, to get 2. This is the multiplier of N�, so you should now have 2N�. You will then need to find the second part of the equation, this will be

  2. T-Shape Investigation.

    This works because if you slide the T-Shape over once to t he right each number is increased by one. There is 5 numbers in each T-Shape so if you move the T-shape over each individual number is in creased by 1.
