# DAY 167:

Today’s Challenge

The rules of Kakuro are very simple.

Just like a crossword, fill in the boxes. Each box must contain a number from 1-9. Each run of boxes must add up to the total shown on the left or above.  You cannot use the same digit in each run, so if a total of 4 is to be completed in 2 boxes, they must be made up of either 3+1 or 1+3, but not 2+2.

Try this beginner puzzle:

The 7puzzle Challenge

The playing board of the 7puzzle game is a 7-by-7 grid of 49 different numbers, ranging from up to 84.

The 2nd & 7th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

4    8    11    17    24    27    28    30    48    55    63    64    70    77

How many multiples of 7 are listed?
