### Times book 1 puzzle 81

OK i give up, what am i missing ?

This is what i have so far ...

1xx x34 xx9
74x xx9 xxx
3x9 x87 2xx

x9x 72x 153
x3x xx5 9x7
517 x93 x2x

9x3 x5x xx2
xxx 3xx x96
6xx 97x xx5

I can normally solve fiendish, but this one's driving me mad.

Thanks,
Gill

Look where the 1s can go in blocks 2 and 5, and see what that allows you to deduce for block 8.

Look at box 5 and the number 4, there is only one place it can go.
