Challenge Level

To get you started, the diagrams below record a potential route through each of the problems.

The numbers record the order in which the different cells could be filled in on the grids.

Of course, there are other possible routes through the problems.

The places where the number is in brackets indicates that there is a choice of number that can be placed there.

What do you think that the number outside the grid might indicate?

The number that you can work out is the product of the numbers in that column. The other column products might help you work this out.

One possibility is to consider first where the number 9 might go, looking at all the rows and columns.

You might then want to consider where the number 16 might go. Thinking about the row DEF and the column CFI in particular might be useful here in narrowing down the options.

After that, try to see how much of the grid each combination lets you fill in!
