I come up with 3 solutions, so it doesn't appear to be a well constructed puzzle (unless you've made a typo):( .

Hi,

I believe there are some errors in the version that you have e-mailed.

The first three numbers in the top row should be 246, not 264 (Note, 24 where part of the given numbers).
Hence, your 7th row should start with **4, not *4*.

All other numbers that you have filled in coincide with my solution.

If you are still stuck with these corrections, let me know.

I was a bit disappointed with this puzzle, it is rated hard, but I solved it in a time which was much shorter than what I usually need for puzzles rated hard.....

Cheers

Berwin

I must have had a bad day. Typo'd the puzzle and my e-mail address. You are correct Berwin - my mistake. Good to have a maths man on the good side of the force.

Thanks,
