Post subject:  Calcudoku with factorial 
In the beginning, I’m sorry for my bad English. I tried to create a new type of the Calcudoku puzzle: 5×5 "multiop" with "!". This one should contain all of operations, which we know here (except negative numbers, though it isn’t operation), + factorial. Operations "+", "–", "×", ":", "^", "" and "mod" work as usually; both "factorial" cages show result of multiplicated cells (no sum). For example: n! / 10 in 3cells cage (in 5×5) >>> possible results: only 12 (120/10 = (2 × 3 × 4 × 5)/10; 72 is impossible); thus combinations 1 × 3 × 4 and 2 × 2 × 3. Note: Variables "a" and "b" can be different or identical; a, b ε N, of course. Good luck for solving…

Good luck for solving… Hi, kozibrada, the idea is very interesting since all new operations enrich the puzzles and improve the variety. I have solved the puzzle and I think I can confirm that the solution is unique. With respect to the notation and to avoid misundertandings I suggest to use always n! / N, where N is the appropriate divisor, 10 in your example, etc.. In this way it would not be necessary to use a!, b!, c!, etc., since n could represent any number in the valid range for that specific calcudoku. Happy New Year.

I agree, “n!” is better, especially for survey in larger puzzles. I chose two variables just because of the first (probably) puzzle of this type – for fact that “a” and “b” don’t have to be equal…

I understand that a!/4 means that de product of the cells must be in a range specified by a!/4 with a being an element of N. This product can be 6 or 30. b!/6 can only be 20. Is that right? Then only 1 solution is left, indeed.
