Quiz Rules

Introduction

KenKen is an exercise in logic and arithmetic. No other skills are required.
The correct solution will have no duplicate values in any row or column and use the digits starting at one.
The number of digits used depends on the dimensions of the grid; e.g., a 6x6 grid uses the numbers 1 through 6.

Equations

A grid is partitioned into regions which we will call 'equations'.

The four equation types are:

  • Sum having a symbol of +
  • Difference having a symbol of -
  • Product having a symbol of × and
  • Quotient having a symbol of ÷

Sum (+)

Any number of cells can participate in a sum and the cells can form any shape. Any of the addend values may be assigned to any of the sum's cell.

Difference (-)

Only two adjacent cells can participate in a difference; either cell can solve to the larger value.

Product (×)

Any number of cells can participate in a product; any of the factors can be assigned to any of the product's cells.

Quotient (÷)

Only two adjacent cells can participate in a quotient; either cell can be assigned the numerator value.
