Step 4: analysis (almost , I think)

this one is almost like the candidate elimination i showed you in the previous step(its called deriving certainty from uncertainty).

Take a look at the picture below.In the center region. There is only two possible places for the 7(and 2). There is three places for the seven in the middle right region , but can not be in the middle ones because 7 is reserved by the center region thus there is only one place let for the seven in the middle right region.
<p>Guys, we just created our sudoku app...the idea behind it was that most apps in the market provide poor quality puzzles where each puzzle has more than one solution. However, we did our homework and have tested each puzzle that was included in the game. Hope you guys like it. Please support our android app. Thanks&quot;True Sudoku&ndash;Truly one solution&quot;</p>
<p> expirienced? No... it exp<strong>E</strong>rienced</p>
The best method is to use google goggles app and it'd solve it for you in like 2-3 seconds XD
Great instructable! For beginners with iPhones i recommend the Sudoku app from Pennypop. It makes sudoku so easy to learn, looks gorgeous, and it's totally free.
Nice instructable! I was thinking about writing up something like this, but am about as far from a mathematician as one can get, so I never really got around to it. I call my &quot;rules&quot; the &quot;Two of a Kind&quot; (two of the same number, in adjacent columns/rows that narrow down the placement in the third row of that set of horizontal or vertical blocks), two pair (two pairs in a row, column, or a block, eliminate all numbers in that associated row/column and/or block....three triples is the same, but with three numbers, and I find it more difficult to use this rule, and it shows up a whole lot less, I find; besides, the other rules usually trump the 3-Trips), and &quot;Three-Pack&quot; (all three numbers in a row/column within a block are filled in, this allows placement of single numbers of adjacent rows to be placed in the other two blocks in that row/column of blocks). I find that, with a minimum of WAG's (Wild @rsed Guess), I can usually plow through the hardest level of the Sudoku app on my Droid3 in about 15-20 minutes.
Sudoku is a fun game to get into. all the different <a href="http://sudokustrategies.net" rel="nofollow">Sudoku Strategies</a> can really work the brain. a great past time<br />
I am a beginner at this little brain-tease, and have discovered a solution that will save the masses from the madness of that one grid that cannot be solved; take a black marker and change things to suit yourself.
Wasn't this instuctable done already? They also suggested the same method
They just seggested scanning,not candidat elimination nor the xy wing
WRT: Step 5 I understand the logic of the numbers but not what you were saying about "x,y,z". Did you miss something out? Cheers, Pat. Pending
the xyz is only to show where the name came from
