DAY 176:

Today’s Challenge

Another Kakuro puzzle for anyone who is a beginner to this fantastic little teaser. I guarantee children will enjoy this and their number skills will improve the more puzzles they do. The rules are very simple:

  • Just like a crossword, fill in the boxes,
  • Each box must contain a number from 1-9 and each run of boxes must add up to the total shown on the left or above,
  • You cannot use the same digits 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, not 2+2.

Here is a Kakuro beginner puzzle to try:

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 1st & 6th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

2    5    9    12    14    15    18    20    22    33    40    49    56    72

Find three pairs of numbers that each have a sum of 42.
