## So, what is Sudoku?

A Sudoku puzzle is a number-placement puzzle that’s based entirely on logic. Essentially, the point is to fill a 9x9 grid with numbers in a way that every row, every column, and every of the 3x3 grids contains every number from 1 to 9.

Most of the time, you’ll find that your Sudoku puzzle comes with some of the numbers fixed in. with the umbers you already have, you’re to complete the puzzle in a way that completes the pattern and provides a perfect number placement module.

As a player, you should also keep in mind that no number from 1 to 9 should be repeated in any column or row. While they can be repeated along the diagonals, the rows and columns should be kept seamlessly filled – with one number from 1 to 9.

While it might be a bit of a challenge to solve Sudoku puzzles, the important and most basic rules of the game include the following:

• Make sure that every nonet, column, and row contains every number (that is, from 1 to 9) exactly once.

• The sum of numbers in any column, row, and nonet should match the small number that is printed at the corner of the puzzle. The traditional Sudoku puzzles that feature the numbers from 1 to 9 usually have the sum as 45, so that’s the number you should be gunning for.
