It looks like sudoku, but it’s a test of arith­metic rather than a pat­tern puzzle.

Each ver­ti­cal and hor­i­zon­tal line has to con­tain the num­bers 1-6. The num­bers in each heav­ily out­lined set of squares, called cages, must pro­duce the num­ber in the top cor­ner. For ex­am­ple, 9x means the num­bers mul­ti­ply to equal 9.

TIP: Num­bers can be re­peated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row.
