Clue: M equals Z

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Lets try to place a 7 in the middle section on the top row in the easy puzzle containing 2-3-4-5-6. The 7 in the left section of the top row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 3. The 7 in the right section of the top row eliminates the space between the 4-6. The only place left is to the right of the 5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.
