As seen above, you can arrange the digits 1-9 in a 3-by-3 grid so that the number formed in the first row can be multplied by 2 to form the number in the second row and by 3 to form the third row.

**It can be done a few different ways using a few different number combinations, but what is the one solution with a 5 placed in the centre square?** Enter ** just** the numbers found in each row in order, with a space between each. For example, the answer for the first grid shown above would be

**.**

*219 438 657*
327 654 981 ?

327 654 981

ReplyDeletegot it within 30 seconds. Super easy

I dont get it, I understand how the first column is 246 and how the answers first column is 369 but how do the others fit it? 1 x 2 is not 3 so how is the middle block 3? and 1 x 3 is definitely not 5 so how does that fit? Maybe I am looking at this wrong.

ReplyDeleteThats what I got....

ReplyDeleteTo answer the above question, it is the total number of the row.

ReplyDelete219 * 2 = 438

219 * 3 = 657

It is not the individual numbers. You just have to use numbers 1-9 in a way that yields 2nd row = twice the value and the 3rd row = thrice the value

246 times 2 = 369

ReplyDelete246 times 3 = 651

So find a number that follows this:

Say the first row's number is: A B C

ABC times 2 should equal D 5 E < because 5 is in the center.

ABC times 3 should also equal F G H .

ABC

D5E

FGH

NOW FIND ABCDEFG by filling in numbers.

Hint. D=6.

Goodluck from there :)

Also, for those who didn't realize, each letter equals a number 1-9. no repeats.

Correction: 219 times 3 **

ReplyDeleteThanks! I cant believe I didnt catch that. I was busy multiplying each number. Blame it on excessive Sudoku I guess! Too focused on each number than the puzzle as a whole.

ReplyDelete327 654 981

ReplyDelete327 * 2 = 654

327 * 3 = 981

Simple Like this!

981 654 327

ReplyDeleteAnonymous at 18:17, you are a douche, trying to trickpeople b posting the answer backwards. Its 327 654 981

ReplyDeleteuhh it is 981 654 327

ReplyDeletethat's what TNT does they screw with your mind, read the question again idiots

Actually you're still a douche and TNT doesn't do much to screw with anyones minds. They even gave us an answer to the first grid. How the fuck does 981 multiply into 654? Fucking scrub.

ReplyDeleteDo we really need all this profanity?

ReplyDeleteI once heard that people whom swear excessively, are less intelligent because they cannot think of the proper words to use in lieu of profanity.

Just sayin'

@fancy english anon;

ReplyDeletelets start by saying this is my first comment on this page, i'm not any of the other anons.

i believe that you shouldn't judge a person's intelligence just by the usage of their words. for example, i could replace "good job" to a phrase synonymous such as "commendable effort", but i won't, because i feel that it isn't necessary.

but that's just me, my beliefs and my choice of words. the usage of simple words may be detrimental to my ability to craft brilliant stories without the use of a thesaurus, but in no ways will it take away from my knowledge. i do not forget the words, i just grow less accustomed to using them.

what i do believe is a sign of poor intelligence, however, is misuse of the words 'their' and 'there'. that just gets to me.

also, if you didn't already read above, it's 327 654 981 :D

327 654 981. Pretty simple. :)

ReplyDeleteI didn't understand and I posted the wrong answer.

ReplyDeleteI read it as you add the numbers together then multiply.

147 258 369 is what I got...

1+4+7=12 1+2=3

2+5+8=15 1+5=6

3+6+9=18 1+8=9

At least you can now see my logic... :(

I agree - you are a smelly used up douche bag 18:17 !!!

ReplyDelete147 * 2 = 258

ReplyDelete147 * 3 = 369

You are a total douche 7:21 !!! And I ain't at a loss for words ya douche !!!
