Without using trial and error, what should be the next step in this kakuro puzzle?

Wouldn't the 8 go @ the bottom square under the 17 since no other square has an 8 in that bottom row?




FaeryWings -> RE: Help needed on Kakuro puzzle (2/10/2014 10:48:43 AM)

Summerwynnne has it. 9 won't work because the smallest total you could get would be 31. And you can also eliminate 6's from that row.

If the bottom square under 17 was 9, and the other six squares in that row were 1-6, that would total 9 + 21 = 30.

In the left-most column, with 4/6/7 as the possibilities for the top square, the possible combinations to make 10 are 1-4-5, 1-3-6, or 1-2-7; a 4 cannot be in either of the bottom two rows. I'm not sure what help that is, but it's something.

True kysuebr, picture updated, still leaves me scratching my head but it's a start thanks.
