T-TOTALS

Introduction

Mathematics Coursework: T-Totals

T-Totals – 10x10 Grid

image00.png

image01.png

1+2+3+12+22= 40        

T-Number=22                                                        T-Total= 40

image10.png

24+25+26+35+45= 145

                                T-Number=45

                                T-Total=145

image19.png

61+62+63+72+82= 340

                T-Number=82

                T-Total=340

image29.png

78+79+80+89+99= 425

                        T-Number=99

                        T-Total=425

For 10x10 Grid:

  • When the T-number is even, so is the T-Total.
  • When the T-number is odd, so is the T-Total.

I will now find the rule which links the T-Number with the T-Total:

image34.pngimage33.png

n+(n-10)+(n-20)+

                                                (n-21)+(n-19)        

                                                        =5n-70

                                      When n= 59 =(5x59)-70=225

Testing:

image34.png

        38+39+40+49+59=225

As you can see my rule has worked.

9x9 Grid:

image35.png

image36.png

        1+2+3+11+20= 37

     T-Number=20

        T-Total= 37

image02.png

        22+23+24+32+41= 142

                     T-Number=41

                     T-Total=142

        46+47+48+56+65= 262image03.png

                     T-Number=65

                     T-Total=262

image04.png

                     61+62+63+71+80=337

                     T-Number=80

                     T-Total=337

For 9x9 Grid:image03.png

  • When the T-Number is even, the T-Total is odd.
  • When the T-Number is odd, the T-Total is even.

8x8 Grid

image07.png

image08.png

        1+2+3+10+18= 34

        T-Number=18

        T-Total=34

image09.png

        20+21+22+29+37= 129

        T-Number=37

        T-Total=129

        33+34+35+42+50= 194image11.png

        T-Number= 50

        T-Total= 194

image12.png

                45+46+47+54+62= 254

                T-Number= 62

                T-Total= 254

For 8x8 Grid:

  • When the T-Number is odd, the T-Total is odd.
  • When the T-Number is even, the T-Total is even.

I will now find a rule which links the T-number with the T-Total:

image14.pngimage13.png

                                                        n+(n-8)+(n-16)+

   (n-18)+(n-17)

=5n-56

 When n=36 =(5x36)-56=124

Testing:

image14.png

                                19+20+21+28+36=124

As you can see my rule has worked.        

T-Totals – Any sized Grid

I will now find the general rule for any sized grid, which links the T-Number with the T-Total.

image15.pngimage16.png

                                                n+(n-G)+(n-2G)

                                                +(n-2G-1)+(n-2G+1)

                                                 = 5n-7G

        When n=65, and G=10         =(5x65)-(7x10)= 255

image15.png

                44+45+46+55+65= 225

As you can see my rule has worked.

Translation:

If I translate the T 3 Vectors right, it will become:

image18.pngimage17.png

22+23+24+33+43= 145                     25+26+27+36+46= 160

T-Number=43                                     T-Number=46

T-Total= 145                                     T-Total=160

  • The T-Total has increased by 15.
  • This because there 5 numbers in the T-Total, which all have increased by 3
  • 5x3=15
  • Consequently, if the vector is (image20.png) the formula for moving T across would be: T-Total+5A

If I translate T, 3 vectors up, it will become:

image22.pngimage21.png

62+63+64+73+83= 345                  32+33+34+43+53= 195

Conclusion

 = Formula for new T-number

5n-7is the formula for T rotated at 270* on point n.

I will now substitute the old ‘n’ (T-number) with the new ‘n’ (the new T-number).

5(n+c-dG+d+cG) -75n+5c-5dG+5d+5cG-7

This is the new formula for the T-Total of my newly rotated shape.

Combination (Rotation & Translation)

  • I will now find the general rule for rotating and then translating a T.
  • The rule will only work in certain Grids, because the vector by which I want to translate the T, will be too big to fit the limitations of the Grid.
  • The limitations are only a problem, if you want the T-shape to stay in the grid, but I have demonstrated already using the 6x6 grid that you can imagine the numbers carrying on.
  • To do this I must combine the rules for rotation with the ones for translations:

90*=5n+5c-5dG-5d-5cG+7+5a-5bG

This allows you to rotate the T by 90* and then move it by any vector.

180*=5n+10c-10dG+7G+5a-5bG

This allows you to rotate the T by 180* and then move it by any vector.

270*= 5n+5c-5dG+5d+5cG-7+5a-5bG

This allows you to rotate the T by 270* and then move it by any vector.

    when the e number goes up by 1, the e-total goes up by 11. So each time we move the E one space to the right, the total goes up by 11. This is because each square in the E has + 1 added to it when moved to the right.
