These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <49>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.    R9C8 - removing <9> from <369> leaving <36> Intersection of row 1 with block 3. The values <34> only appears in one or more of squares R1C7, R1C8 and R1C9 of row 1. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 3. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 3 cannot contain these values.    R2C8 - removing <3> from <3689> leaving <689>    R2C9 - removing <3> from <379> leaving <79>    R3C9 - removing <4> from <479> leaving <79> Squares R2C9 and R3C9 in column 9 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <79>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.    R1C9 - removing <79> from <3479> leaving <34>    R7C9 - removing <9> from <349> leaving <34> R1C5 is the only square in row 1 that can be <7> R7C3 is the only square in row 7 that can be <9> R8C2 can only be <3> R8C3 can only be <4> R8C1 can only be <6> R8C8 can only be <9> R7C1 can only be <8> R6C1 can only be <3> R6C3 can only be <8> R2C1 can only be <7> R3C3 can only be <5> R2C9 can only be <9> R3C1 can only be <4> R2C2 can only be <8> R3C9 can only be <7> R3C5 can only be <8> R2C3 can only be <3> R3C2 can only be <9> R5C5 can only be <5> R1C4 can only be <9> R5C6 can only be <4> R5C4 can only be <8> R9C6 can only be <9> R9C4 can only be <4> R1C6 can only be <5> R1C7 can only be <4> R1C9 can only be <3> R7C7 can only be <6> R1C8 can only be <8> R7C9 can only be <4> R2C8 can only be <6> R2C7 can only be <5> R9C8 can only be <3> R7C5 can only be <3> R9C5 can only be <6> BrainBashers™ is a trademark. This website uses cookies.
