PROB. - Figure Logic 1 (S496)
© Copyright 2000, Jim Loy
Figure Logic looks much like a crossword puzzle. And solving it is much like solving a crossword puzzle. There are numbered clues, and you can deduce interrelationships between the numbers. When solved, each little square will contain a one digit number. None of the multiple digit numbers (like 1-across) begins with a zero. The same digit may occur more than once in a multiple digit number.
The numbered clues limit the various
numbers. For example, a two digit number that is 40 greater than another
two digit number must be between 50 and 99. And the intersecting numbers
limit each other. For example, if 15A (in the diagram) happened to be between
25 and 33, then 15D would be between 20 and 39. Or if 13A happened to be
divisible by 5, then it must end in 5, because 14D cannot begin with 0.
