### Hollywood Squares

Transcript: 12 72 54 36 18 63 99 Finally we figured out the very first row and column which help us fill out the rest of the matrix. The numbers in the first row were, 8, 6, 4, 7, 11. The first column was, 9, 4, 3, 5, 12, 10. The number that was repeated was 4. Problem: To solve a matrix you have to use the numbers 2-12. Use each number to fill in the first row and column to create the pattern. Only one number can be used twice. 96 72 48 24 84 132 10 32 24 16 8 28 44 4 Hollywood Squares Laya B. and Audrey E. Strategies used: 40 30 20 10 35 55 9 3 Process/Explanation: The strategies we mainly used would be: guess and check and logical reasoning. The reason we used guess and check was because it was the most logical strategy to use for our problem. We used logical reasoning to determine whether or the combinations were logical or illogical . For example 33, it can only be 3 times 11 in the numbers 2-12 that would give 33. Conclusion/Answer: First, when we were given the matrix there were numbers that were already in it. The numbers given to us were:18,16,24,30,33,132,70. Since we were only allowed to use numbers 2-12, we immediately figured out that 3 times 11 would be the product of 33. 3x8=24, so since number 3 was used, we cant use it again. 2x9=18, 4x4=16,6x5=30,12x11=132, 7x10=70. These are the number we used to figure out the pattern. After we found the pattern, we filled out the remaining squares with the product of each combination. 80 60 40 20 70 110 5 24 18 12 6 21 33 The Matrix 1 8 6 4 2 7 11
