    Four Square

    Each grid in the diagram is populated using the same method. What is the value of x?

    Re: Four Square

    A hint for those who want one:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> The three digits in each of the bottom rows represents a three digit number.</span hide>
    <font color=blue><font face="Script MT Bold"><big>Rob</big></font face=script></font color=blue>

    I have been playing with this one on and off for a few days and it is driving me crazy. Any other pointers for me?

    Re: Four Square

    Sorry Hans, methinks I assumed too much:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> sum the product of the digits in row 1 and row 2. This produces the three digit number in row 3.</span hide>
    <font color=blue><font face="Script MT Bold"><big>Rob</big></font face=script></font color=blue>

    I had tried, cross referencing to other grids, changing them to letters to try if you had used Caesers box and on and on and then I found it was as easy as that <img src=/S/liar.gif border=0 alt=liar width=25 height=22> <img src=/S/noevil.gif border=0 alt=noevil width=25 height=17>

    Nice one, good puzzle
