### Help Please! - Puzzle #131

Am still unable to complete the fiendish puzzles (with the exception of Friday's one a fortnight ago) despite reading the hints and tips in these posts. Can anyone help me with last Friday's puzzle (29-04-05). Am stuck at this stage:

**2|3*9|1**
3**|4**|298
19*|*2*|**3
---------------
***|584|93*
9*8|*32|4**
453|*97|**2
---------------
*3*|***|624
761|243|**9
***|**6|3**

Can anyone give me a clue to help me along?

Jeans,

Have a look at row 6. What's missing? Then look at col 7...

Nice hint, IJ. I like the style.

Thanks for the hint. I could see immediately that I could now put 8 in R6C7 and hence could complete C7.

I still had to ponder a while at this stage but have now successfully completed.

Thank you!

Hey Buddy it's not difficult after that.

Try to solve C7 for Numbers 1 & 8 and take from that point forward. I solved it in couple of minutes after that.
