Rules

  1. You can define a grid size between 3x3 and 9x9. Please be patient with the page when loading larger grids as it can take a few seconds!
  2. Depending on your selected size, each row or column can only contain one of each number in its range, e.g. 1-3, 1-9.
  3. Once loaded, the colours of the squares define a section of the grid. Each section has a number and a mathematical operator (add, subtract, multiply, divide). These define the value of the squares within, when the operator is applied.
  4. A congratulatory message will appear when you have successfully filled in the grid! Or you can give up and click the solve button... But why would you do that?
