I do not understand those math grids. I always play the game until I get to that then I quit. I wish someone would post "how" to work the grids and pyramids, instead of just the answers, then I could learn how. Guess I'm not one of the Smart People. Maybe with a good teacher?

where is the fork?
number puzzle is like a crossword puzzle but no repeat in number in a line. so for 23 the answer is 9, 8, & 6 in some order. for 6 the answer is 1, 2, & 3 in some order. Hope that helps. top line across and bottom line across are both 1 8 in this puzzle
Out

Out with no help. From the name I thought it would be harder.

The puzzle is called Kakuro. Look here for instructions: http://cte.jhu.edu/techacademy/web/2000/heal/siteslist.htm (Click on the Kakuro Cross Sums link on this page. It is the 14th one the list. )

I found another answer to the Kakuro puzzle that did not work: 27, 194, 719, 18

I agree with Kikilo....I never finished a game with that puzzle until Nannajoy explained it...Thank you!! It makes sense now :)

this is embarrassing, but I cannot find the last piece of puzzle.....top right.... :(
well, this time I can't finish, but not because of the number puzzle :( my hand is throbbing from clicking

I got hung up for a while on the same piece.

Also in the logs.
