In this puzzle, the goal is to fill every empty square (including shaded squares) so that:
- Each square contains a positive digit (1-9). Digits may be reused.
- The percent next to a row gives the percent of the row sum contained in the shaded square of that row.
- The percent above each column gives the percent of the column sum contained in the shaded square of that column.
Solve the following percent puzzle, entering each square of the completed puzzle in the corresponding box below.
Here is the answer:
6 4 8
2 7 9
1 2 1
One example is on the bottom row, 1 2 1 wouldn't be valid because their sum is 4. and the shaded square would be the one on the far left, which must be 50% of the sum un that row. 1 is not 50% of 4. It would be 2.
There were a couple more errors too. Is 6 75% of 12? No, it would be 9.
