For this “Greater-Than Sudoku,” I’m not giving you ANY numbers to start off with! Adjoining squares in the grid’s 3x3 boxes have a greater-than sign (>) telling you which of the two numbers in those squares is larger. Fill in every square with a number from 1–9 using the greaterthan signs as a guide. When you’re done, as in a normal Sudoku, every row, column and 3x3 box will contain the numbers 1–9 exactly one time. (Solving hint: try to look for the 1s and 9s in each box first, then move on to the 2s and 8s, and so on).
