Thank you, kozibrada, for this new puzzle [thumbup], it's very amused and interesting.

The answer to your extra question is no. If I am right, the left puzzle itself, the all-multiplication cages, has 4 different solutions, just by swapping two pairs of numbers, the 5 and the 7, and the 3 and the 4, when the grid is almost full.

The all-addition cages puzzle itself, in the right side, probably has a really big number of solutions, to find them all we would need the Patrick's software cooperation (so, in a few days, I am sure Patrick will tell us).

My pleasure. [smile]

I first relied on the "left" puzzle but it has contained – as you say – the 4 solutions, so I added the 2nd puzzle.
By the way, "17 March" puzzle took me a little less time and creativity than "9 March" puzzle.

I also would be curious how many solutions has the single "right" puzzle… [scared]

That'll be an insane number, and my guess is my solver will choke on it.

Any programmers out there whose solvers can determine the number of solutions?
