About four to six weeks ago, I started solving the 300 puzzles in the White Belt KenKen book. I finished the last of those puzzles early last week.
So this week I have started the Green Belt KenKen book. And there is no doubt the challenge in the puzzles has gone up a notch or too … but so far through the 5 X 5 puzzles I am keeping up.
“Master the intriguing KenKen puzzles … one level at a time. Your challenge: Use basic math – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division – while also exercising your logic and problem-solving skills. The more you think ahead to your next move and consider all the possible outcomes, the better you’ll get!”
Below is a 6 X 6 puzzle that has been solved. The little numbers represent the answer you are solving to, the operational sign tells what type of math you use to arrive at the designated answer. And the bold lined blocks tell you what blocks and how many numbers will be in the computation. Since this is a 6 X 6 puzzle you can only use numbers 1 through 6 and no number can be duplicated in a row or a column.
Can you KenKen?
