Introduction

Kimberly Wong 10F MATH COURSEWORK T-Totals Part I: Aim: To investigate the relationship between the T-total and the T-number. The problem of the question is based on a 9 by 9 number grid. 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 T-shape drawn on a 9x9 grid: A T-shape is drawn on the 9 by 9 grid and all the numbers the T-shape are added together, and the sum is the T-total. This 'T-total' is known as T. The problem is to figure out the relationship between the T-total and the position of the T-shape (the position of the T-shape is the number in the bottom part of the T-shape). This position of the T-shape is known as p. ...read more.

Proving the Formula: 1. * Because it is a 9 x 9 grid, the difference between the three numbers is 9 * Each level increased means a decrease in 9 T = p (p - 9) + (p - 18) + (p - 17) + (p - 19) decrease by 9 each time This is shown in the equation. P represents the position of the T-shape, which can be shown as 0 because every other number has a relationship on some way with this number. This can be described as (9 x 0). 9 is because it is on a 9 x 9 number grid and zero is because it is the starting level of the T-shape. The next box above is (p - 9) because it has increased one level on the 9 x 9 grid, and therefore the number is 9 less than before. So, since the number is 9 less than the p number, it is therefore (p - 9). Another way I got the 9, is from (9 x 1). 9 is because it is a 9 x 9 number grid, and 1 because it has increased one level. ...read more.

Conclusion

Therefore, the equation is just p, because 8 x 0 is just 0. * 8 x 1 is because it is on an 8 x 8 number grid, and 1 is because it has increased one level. 8 x 1 is 8, but because it has increased one level, the number has decreased by 8, so it is p - 8. * 8 x 2 is because it is on an 8 x 8 number grid and 2 is because it has gone up 2 levels. 8 x 2 is 16, but because it has increased 2 levels, the number has decreased by 16, so it is p - 16. * The top two side numbers are figured out using the middle top number. Since they are consecutive, the number on the left would be p - 17 (this is found from 8 x 2 +1, and the number on the right would be p - 15 (this if found from 8 x 2 - 1). Also, since I know that T= 5p - 63, I now also know what p would be if I only knew T. If T= 5p - 63 P= T + 63 5 ...read more.

    T=5v-18 We can even say that; T=5v-2g As 9 is the grid size, and all numbers in our relationship grid were related around 9, so we can concluded that it is related to the grid size. We can test this on different positions on the 9x9 grid.
