It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.
