I dont know if it said this on the website link posted but the answer is 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960 (that is the number of possible sudoku patterns) this is the number of possible latin squares, 5,524,751,496,156,892,842,531,225,600 (latin squares are the same as sudoku except for the fact that you dont have to work with 3x3 boxes, you only have to put the numbers one through nine in every row and column)
