# SUDOKU MT AND MULTIPLICATION TABLES

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
LEV     PUZZLE

This is a sudoku variant to practice multiplication tables in combination with logical thinking.

• The normal sudoku rules apply (the blocks are only separated from each other).
• The numbers in the colored cells are products (=the result of a multiplication). You have to place the factors in the grid. Sometimes you have multiple options eg 24 can be 4x6 or 3x8. There are 5 possible situations:
• Rows with colored cells between blocks: the smallest factor is placed in one of the 3 cells to the left of the colored cell and the largest factor in one of the 3 cells to the right of the colored cell.
• Columns with colored cells between blocks: the smallest factor is placed in one of the 3 cells above the colored cell and the largest factor in one of the 3 cells below the colored cell.
• Colored cells on the 2 diagonals: the smallest factor on the diagonal is placed in one of the 3 cells above the colored cell and the largest factor on the diagonal in one of the 3 cells below the colored cell. This in both directions.
• Empty colored cells in dark blue: the numbers in the 3 cells on the left or the 3 cells above the empty colored cells are all larger than the 3 numbers on the right or below the empty colored cell.
• Colored cells with a cross are cells where we do not show a product to make the puzzle more difficult.

TIP: when you have found both factors of a product, click on the cell of that product. The field turns BLACK as a reminder that you have found the factors for that product.
