There’s no space in the answer the solution form wants.

What does a green number mean if it is in the top-right potion of a black square (above diagonal), or below the diagonal?

Above diagonal (top-right): Sum of horizontal numbers on the right.
Below diagonal (bottom-left): Sum of vertical numbers below.

I tried to solve this using an online Kakuro solver where you build the whole grid manually and click “Solve”, but it was able to solve it only partially, as it gave the result with some of the cells having a probable list of digits, rather than a single digit.

After adding the grouped cells, are the 11 letters read from top to bottom and left to right?

Can someone help clarify how am I supposed to use the white circles? I completed the puzzle but after 2 hours and many tries I still cant get the solution.
I hope its not too much to ask for

you see 3 white circles that for example have numbers 2 7 and 9 in them that means its 2+7+9=18 - 18 letter of alphabet

FML. I solved the puzzle then went back to read the directions for what to do with the white circles, and then I read that you can’t use duplicate numbers in a row/column… Time to start over

I meant to say two-digit numbers not two-decimal, no need to be toxic for no reason :grin:

Okay I got it! I liked it. One thing, someone already said that the password is 2 words but you have to write it together without spaces. Otherwise it doesn’t work.

I’m not sure, but I seem to remember something about kakuro including multiplication, which this puzzle doesn’t.

I am not sure about this. (the multiplication)

managed to solve it, but i did not receive the confirmation mail. For those still struggling, the letters found are not scrambled so no need to be a native English speaker to solve it :wink:

In what order should I get the letters from the puzzle?

why 6? I can see for the others because they have only one combination but 6 has two so why is it different from 5?
