About Calcudoku

Calcudoku (also known as "Minuplu", "KenDoku", "MathDoku", "Yukendo", "Square Wisdom") is a mathematical and logical puzzle loosely similar to Sudoku. It was invented by Japanese mathematics teacher Tetsuya Miyamoto. The objective is to fill the grid with the digits 1 through N (where N is the number of rows or columns in the grid) such that:

##### Basic Rules

- Each row contains exactly one of each digit.
- Each column contains exactly one of each digit.
- Each bold-outlined group of cells (block) contains digits that achieve the specified result using the specified mathematical operation: addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (×), and division (÷).
- Unlike Killer Sudoku, digits may repeat within a block.

##### Additional Rules for Calcudoku

- The mathematical operation in each block must be applied to all the digits within that block to achieve the specified result.
- Each block's result and operation are given, and the digits must be arranged to satisfy these conditions.

##### Basic Solving Tips

- Start with blocks that have only one cell since they directly provide the digit.
- Use the row and column rules to eliminate possibilities for digits in each cell.
- For larger blocks, consider the mathematical operation and the result to determine possible combinations of digits.
- Look for intersections where certain digits must appear to satisfy both row/column rules and block rules.
- Remember that digits can repeat within a block but must be unique within rows and columns.
