Is there any significance to the yellow squares, and is it that the numbers 1-36 must be placed in uniquely, or is there another random range of numbers that has to fit in.


edit: does one apply bodmas or total up as one goes along the row:?:

Same question:

There are 12 equations for 36 variables and you are looking for integer solutions? Must the numbers be 1-36 and are there more constraints (for the yellow cells)?

a) This puzzle is not a Sudoku anymore than an acrostic is a crossword. Actually less.

b) I'm guessing, but typically the yellow squares have no significance in a puzzle of this type other than for submitting the solution.
