    The two remaining numbers in the T shape are N-18+1 and N-18-1. Thus the T total is: N+ (N-9) + (N-18) + (N-18+1) + (N-18-1) = 5N-63 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23

    PART 2 This next section involves using grids of different sizes and then translating the t-shape to different positions. Then investigation of the relationship between the t-total, the t-number and the grid size. Here I are doing what we did in the last section but finding out more about the grid size and what it is capable of doing.

    We then times the 54 by 5 because it rises 5 ever time the t- number goes up. Then we + the t-total from the original t-shape and we come out with the t-total for the green t-shape. This is another way to work out the t-total.

    To test this hypothesis I will draw a larger diagram and count the outer border tiles to check my formula. If I was to let the pattern number be N= 7, (See below) then: B= 4(7) + 4 = 32 So I expect that pattern number 7 will have 32 outer border tiles.
