Investigation of a Relationship Between Stairs

In this project I am going to investigate the relationship between
different stairs placed in different places in a number square, which
is numbered from one to one hundred. I will be trying to find a
formula to get a total of any stair any place.

Investigating the Relationship Between the Stairs and the Position of the Step Stair

- Investigating the Relationship Between the Stairs and the Position of the Step Stair We have been set a problem which is to investigate step stairs. Throughout this report I will be planning how to tackle the problem, break it down simpler into an equation. All the results will be put into tables so I can look for a pattern. I will then produce my own rule to use and test and justify it. The problem to which I am solving is creating my own rule to use to calculate the 3step-stair....   [tags: Papers]

Step-Stair Investigation Essay

- Step-Stair Investigation For my GCSE Maths coursework I was asked to investigate the relationship between the stair total and the position of the stair shape on the grid. Secondly I was asked to investigate the relationship further between the stair totals and the other step stairs on other number grids. The number grid below has two examples of 3-step stairs. I will use Algebra as a way to find the relationship between the stair total and the position of the stair on the grid....   [tags: Papers]

- Fear in Cellar Stairs        Poetry is about emotion -- not only the emotion displayed in the many layers  of a poem's language, but also the emotional layers created in the reader.   Some poetry can be light and happy, other poetry can be ecstatic and ethereal;    and at the opposite extreme, poetry can be dark and downright threatening. Such     a poem is "Cellar Stairs" by the contemporary poet Thomas Lux.              "It's rickety down to the dark," states the first line.

I have found out that every time you move the two-step stair one to
the left the product of the two-step stair goes down by three. This
also means that every time you move the two-step stair one to the
right the product will go up by three.

I have found out that when you move the stairs up by one the product
of the two-step stair goes up by 30. This also means that when you
move the two-step stair down by one the product will go down by -30. I
have also found out the nth term for all two-step stairs that 3n+11
will equal the sum off all the numbers in the stair. I found out this
by multiply the number in the bottom left hand corner by how many
numbers that are in the stairs, then I added how much is needed to
make the product correct, I shall use this to try and find out the
other nth terms. I will now test my formula.

45 45+35+36=116

35 36

To do the nth term I have to times 3 by 35 then plus 11, which equals
116

I will now move on to a three-step stair.

I have found out that every time you move the three-step stair one to
the left the product of the three-step stair goes down by six. This
also means that every time you move the three-step stair to the right
the product will go up by six.

33 34 35

The product of the last three three-step stairs tells me that when you
move the stairs up by one the product of the three-step stair goes up
by sixty. This also means that when you move the three-step stair down
by one the product will go down by -60. I have also found out the nth
term for the three-step stairs and it is 6n+44 I shall now test this.

78

68 69 58+59+60+68+69+78=392

58 59 60

To do the nth term I would have to times 6 by 58 then plus 44 which
equals 392. Now I will move on to a four-step stair.

I shall now move on to a four-step stair

I have found out that every time you move the four-step stair one to
the left the product of the four-step stair goes down by ten. This
also means that every time you move the four-step stair to the right
the product will go up by ten. I have also found out that all the
products are even and I know that they will be even wherever you put a
three or four-step stair it will always be even. On a three step stair
wherever you put it on the grid there will always be 2 or 4 odd
numbers and if you add 2 odds numbers together it makes a even and the
same with 4 odd numbers and with a four-step stair there is ever 4 or
6 odd numbers.

33 34

43 44 45 33+34+35+36+43+44+45+53+54+63=440

33 34 35 36

I have found out that the product of the four-step stairs tells me
that when you move the stairs up by one the product of the four-step
stair goes up by one hundred. This also means that when you move the
four-step stair down by one the product will go down by -100. I have
also found the nth term for the four-step stair is 10n+110. I shall
now test the nth term.

46 47

36 37 38 26+27+28+29+36+37+38+46+47+56=370

26 27 28 29

To do the nth term I have to times 10 by 26 then plus 110 which equals
370.

So I will now move on to a five-step stair.

41 42 43 44 45

I have found out that every time you move the five-step stair one to
the left the product of the three-step stair goes down by fifteen.
This also means that every time you move the three-step stair to the
right the product will go up by fifteen, but the product is now not
always an even number it is sometimes an even or an odd number. This
is because there is not always an even amount of odd numbers, there is
some times an odd amount of odd numbers. I predict that when you move
a five-step stair up by one the product will go up by 150. This is
because when you move it up each number is going up by 10 and there is
15 numbers in the number so this means that it would go up by 150.

53

43 44

33 34 35 53+43+44+33+34+35+23+24+25+26+13+14+15+16+17=415

43 44 45 46

33 34 35 36 37

I have found out that every time you move the 5-step stair up by 1 the
product goes up by 150, this means that when you move the 5-step stair
down by one the product goes down by 150. I have also found out the
nth term for this which is 15n+220, I shall now test this.

64

54 55

44 45 46 64+54+55+44+45+46+34+35+36+37+24+25+26+27+28=580

34 35 36 37

24 25 26 27 28

To do the nth term I have to times 15 by 24 then plus 220 which equals
580. The nth term is correct.

Conclusion

Overall I have found out the nth terms for a 1 to a ten-step stair and
some patterns with the nth term. I have also found out how much a 1 to
a 5-step stair product changes if you move it up, down, left and
right.
