June - KenKen

Postby Maxim Trevelyan » Sat Jun 03, 2017 7:25 pm

School may be out soon, but there's no reason why we can't exercise our brains a little more. What a better way to do it than with a math puzzle. I do see the irony in me giving you a math puzzle...

Meet KenKen! Quite similar to sudoku, but you need to also adhere to basic mathematical operations.

Here are the rules:

  • The only numbers you may write are 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  • No numbers may appear more than once in any row or column. Also, all required numbers must appear in every row and column.
  • Each "cage" (region bounded by a heavy border) contains a target number in the corner. If there's more than one cell in the cage, the target is also accompanied by an arithmetic operation. You must fill that cage with numbers that produce the target number, using only the specified arithmetic operation. Numbers may be repeated within a cage, if necessary, as long as they do not repeat within a single row or column.
  • In a one-cell cage, just write the target number in that cell.

Example:
