**Here is the solution for THE CURSE, level 59: Combination**

**You need to scroll 4 columns so that every row add up to 12.**

I had to use brute force to crack this one. If you know of a better technique to crack this one, please comment and advise! (Except by using a computer program, XLS, etc!)

Here is a solution:

Column 1: 4, 3, 5, 1,etc

Column 2: 4, 3, 1, 2, etc

Column 3: 2, 3, 1, 5, etc

Column 4: 2, 3, 5, 4, etc.

Or see screen-print below for the answer!

There you go! Each row add up to 12.

nice solve

ReplyDeletePick a number which only occurs once in a single column. Put this in row 1. From this point on, don't change this column. I used 1 in col 4.

ReplyDeleteFill the rest of row 1 with numbers that total up to 12; e.g. 5,5,1,1. Cycle through the combinations until you get to the answer. There are up to 18 combinations you have to go through to get the answer if you use 1 for c4r1.

That worked!!!

DeleteGreat strategy!!

Talk about luck.. I did in 6 moves with this strategy.... I was shocked.

Deletelol only needed 2 look at first 2 rows

ReplyDeleteI used the number 5-1 because when there is a 5 it must be a 1 and then I try to put all the 5 in linewith al the 1 it works....
