# T-totals. I have realised that the number above any T-number is the T-number minus the Grid size, in other words, N-G. To work out the T-total, just simply add everything in the T-shape.

T-structure for a 7x7 Grid

Example 1:

Example 2:

General T-structure for any Grid size:

N= T-number

G= Grid size

I have realised that the number above any T-number is the T-number minus the Grid size, in other words, N-G.

To work out the T-total, just simply add everything in the T-shape.

T-total= n+ (n-g) + (n-2g-1) + (n-2g) + (n-2g+1)

T-total= 5n-7g

I will check that this formula works for any size grid:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |

9 | 10 | 11 | 12 |

13 | 14 | 15 | 16 |

T-total = 1+2+3+6+10= 22

Using the formula: 5x10=50 – (7x4) = 22

The formula works for this grid size.

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 |

T-total = 7+8+9+13+18 = 55

Using the formula: 5x18=90 – (7x5) = 55

The formula works for this grid size as well.

N+A

Variable = A

A= the number of times T is moved across

Translations: down

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 |

When you move the T-shape down one square the number increases by the size of the grid. For example, in this grid, every number increases by 9.

When the T-shape is moved 2 squares down, the number increases by 2x size of the grid.

The same rule applies: When T-shape is moved 3 squares down, the number increases by 3x size of the grid.

Formula:

N= T-number

D= the amount of times the T-shape is moved down.

G= Grid size

The formula which works for any grid size is: N+DG

Translation: across and down

Formula for T-number: N+A+DG

Formula for T-total:

T-total = N+A+DG-2G-1+N+A+DG-2G+N+A+DG-2G+1+N+A+DG-G+N+A+DG

Conclusion

Therefore, N’ = N+A+DG+H+VG+V-HG.

The T-total for a shape which has been translated then rotated is as follows:

Therefore the T-total would be all the boxes added together.

T-total = 5N+5A+5DG+5H+5VG+5V-5HG+7

This can be factorised to get

T-total = 5(N+A+DG+H+VG+V-HG) +7

Now I will test this for the above grid to check if this works.

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 |

Formula:

5(N+A+DG+H+VG+V-HG) +7

Therefore: - 5(16+1+21+1+7+1-7) +7 = 207

T-total = 40+41+42+35+49 = 207

The formula works!

In conclusion to work out the T-number for a new shape after it has been translated and rotated you use the formula:

N’= N+A+DG+H+VGV-HG

And the formula for the T-total after the shape has been translated and rotated is:

N’= 5(N+A+GD+H+VG+V-HG)+7
