S I X 6 X
6 S I  I I
6 6 S 6 S
X I S I  X
X 6 S 6 X

Could there be roman numerals thrown in

I think they want the total answer.

Assuming that those letters mean "SIX", the answer is 78.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

Actually, do you think they could mean Roman Numerals? Like I=1 and X=10. The only problem with that is that I don't think there's an S symbol for the Roman Numerals.

Hi;

Unfortunately, that post is from over 10 years ago. We are not likely to get much further info from the OP.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi;

The grid has six of each of the letters 'S', 'I' and 'X' (not necessarily in order), from which the word 'SIX' can be formed six times.

If 'SIX' represents the number 6, then the sum of the value of the six of them and the seven occurrences of the number 6 is 78 (same as Monox D. I-Fly's answer in post #2).

This uses all grid entries.
