Fill in the blank squares of the grid, us­ing 1 to 9, with­out re­peat­ing any num­ber in any run line. The

the to­tal in the shaded box at the top or be­gin­ning of each line.

A num­ber in the bot­tom half of the shaded box gives a ver­ti­cal to­tal; in the top half, it’s a hor­i­zon­tal to­tal. It’s use­ful to learn num­ber com­bi­na­tions: for in­stance, a clue of 16 over two squares can only be 7 and 9. A clue of 7 over 3 squares can only be 1 + 2 + 4. For a print­able list of the num­ber com­bi­na­tions go to: www.kakuro.com/sin­gle­com­bos.php
