### Did I do this loop correctly?

I've been trying to figure out nice loops. Can somebody tell me if I did this right?

Code: Select all
` *-----------* |.2.|3..|...| |9..|.6.|..8| |..7|...|2.3| |---+---+---| |..5|.8.|1..| |4..|.5.|..6| |..1|.7.|9..| |---+---+---| |1.2|...|6..| |7..|.3.|..4| |...|..5|.3.| *-----------* *-----------* |.2.|31.|...| |9.3|.62|..8| |..7|.9.|2.3| |---+---+---| |..5|.8.|1..| |4..|251|3.6| |..1|.7.|9..| |---+---+---| |132|.4.|6..| |75.|13.|824| |...|.25|731| *-----------*  *--------------------------------------------------* | 568  2    468  | 3    1    478  | 45   679  79   | | 9    14   3    | 57   6    2    | 45   17   8    | | 568  148  7    | 58   9    48   | 2    16   3    | |----------------+----------------+----------------| | 23   67   5    | 469  8    369  | 1    47   27   | | 4    789  89   | 2    5    1    | 3    78   6    | | 23   68   1    | 46   7    36   | 9    458  25   | |----------------+----------------+----------------| | 1    3    2    | 78   4    78   | 6    59   59   | | 7    5    69   | 1    3    69   | 8    2    4    | | 68   489  469  | 69   2    5    | 7    3    1    | *--------------------------------------------------*`

[r3c8]=6=[r3c1]=5=[r3c4]-5-[r2c4]-7-[r2c8]-1-[r3c8] => r3c8<>1

Thanks!

Yes, your nice loop is correctly formed and the notation is right.
