GEO 9 MATH PUZZLES

The GEO9 – MATH Puzzles are a Standard 9 by 9 Grid with the Normal NO REPEAT numbers in any Column and in any Row.

But there are Colored Shapes, containing 3 to 5 Cells, where simple math must be performed to determine the Numbers in these Cells.  By solving the Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division within the Shapes and with the Rules of NO REPEAT numbers, one can solve the Puzzles.

The Colors of the Shapes are:    Orange:( Addition ),    Yellow:( Subtraction ),          Green:( Division ),             Pink:( Multiplication ).

Using 4 Distinct Color Shapes allows for mixed mathematical functions in one Puzzle.

LEARN-HOW-TO-DO-PUZZLES

The Geo-8X, 9X, and 10X Puzzles have an added feature.  Some cells contain Red, Blue or Green Underlines.

Find the Numbers in the cells with the Red Underlines first.  All these can be determined with the starting numbers in the grid.

Then find all the Numbers in the cells with the Blue Underlines.  This can be done because you have added numbers in the Red Underlined cells.

Next, find the Numbers in the cells with the Green Underlines. Remember when you determine what numbers can’t be in a cell sometimes there is only One Number left.  Also, look at the entire Row or Column, and figure out what numbers are missing.  Some of those missing numbers might fit in only one cell.

Now, you can finish the puzzle.  As always, you never have to guess, there is ALWAYS a CLUE somewhere.
