A clear pattern can be seen when looking at square trays with a tomato going bad in the corner. Here is a table showing some different sized squares and how long they take to go bad with the bad tomato starting off in the corner: Size (LxL) Amount of time for whole tray to go bad [T(in hours)] 2x2 2 3x3 4 4x4 6 5x5 8 6x6 10 7x7 12 The obvious pattern is that as length - l increases by one, the time for the tray to go bad - t increases by 2.
