# T-Totals and T-Shapes

Introduction

T-Totals and T-Shapes T-Totals and T-numbers 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 This is the 9 x 9 Grid displaying the first kind of T I shall be looking at, as with this T and all other T's I shall be trying to find out a formula with which will tell me how to work out the T-Total of a T-Shape. The Numbers that have been highlighted in Purple will make my first T-shape. The T number for this shape is 20, as it is the number at the tip if the T (highlighted in yellow). The T total for this shape is 37 as it is the result off all the numbers in the T added together (1+2+3+11+20 = 37) You will notice that as the T progresses downwards the number increases by 9 (2+9 = 11, 11+9 =20) as this is the width of the grid. In the formula I will show this Number will be known as G or grid size. To get the formula I constructed a similar T-Shape however looking at subtraction rather than addition. T in this Shape stands for the T-Number which in this case is 20. ...read more.

We now need to use the same method with different grid size to make a universal equation. I have chosen a grid width of 5 as that has a central number as does a grid width of 9, but make it vertically longer as to allow room to express vertical translations.

My T total is 22+13+4+3+5= 47. The number in my T shape directly above the T number is 9 places back on the grid so it is N-9. The number directly above this is also 9 places back on the grid so it is N-9-9= N-18.
