This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?Teacher gave that as a problem of the week, and from what I've done I figured it was unsolvable. Kind of messed up POW if it doesn't even work... Last edited by MajikWaffle (20061103 10:56:22) #2 20061010 17:12:57
Re: This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?As far as I have tried for the past 40 minutes, it is impossible to solve with logic. #3 20061010 17:17:57
Re: This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?I managed to fill up quite a bit of it, but no luck yet. Sorry. #4 20061011 09:41:15
Re: This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?I managed to solve it without too many problems. I made a mistake somewhere and so had to start again once, but apart from that it was fine. Maybe you just weren't being logical enough? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20061011 10:04:47
Re: This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?A couple of much more interesting questions: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20061011 15:45:07
Re: This Sudoku's unsolvable, correct?Heh, the problem changed once he figured it was unsolvable including the linked image. #7 20061011 17:14:31
