# Unique Straits

A singular sensation

## Object of the Game

To find all proven three-straight-connected numbers in a grid whose sum equals the demanded Equa.

## How to Play

- Choose a prefilled number grid.
- For this game numbers are connected in straight threes
**vertically or horizontally only**, as shown in the diagrams below.**No “L” shape is allowed**.

- Numbers can be calculated in any combination, but keep in mind the mathematical order of operations as you calculate:
**First perform any calculations inside parentheses, if they exist.****Next perform all multiplications and divisions****Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions**

- Found straits cannot cross each other. Each number can only be used in one strait.
- Use only basic arithmetic functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division; and follow the order of operations when necessary.

## Example

Find all 6 straits of Equa 16 in this 5×4 grid. The solution is as follows:

Let’s check the solution:

2 x (5 + 3) = 16

12 + 8 : 2 = 16

10 + 9 – 3 = 16

8 + 2 + 6 = 16

5 x 5 – 9 = 16

12 + 4 x 1 = 16
