17 March user submitted puzzle
Thank you, kozibrada, for this new puzzle , 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.

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…

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?
