Tesla Puzzle

An ingenious mind melding mathological game

Object of the Game

Put the set of given numbers into the square grid so that any 3 adjacent numbers DO NOT SOVLE the given Equa.

How to Play

  • Insert the given set of numbers into the grid in adjacent threes.
  • In this game, adjacent numbers are three numbers connected vertically, horizontally, and in “L” connection, as shown in the diagram below.

Horizontal equa
Vertical equa
L-shaped Equa

  • 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
  • As you put the numbers in the grid, refer back to the list of equations. No combination of numbers you added should match any of the equations on the list.
  • The puzzle is solved when all the numbers from the set are in the grid and NO THREE-ADJACENT numbers result in the given Equa.
  • Use only basic arithmetic functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division; and follow the order of operations when necessary.
  • In some beginner levels of Tesla Puzzle, the grid may be partially filled for easier solving

Solution

In this 3×2 grid, with prefilled one number (8) our task is to put numbers 1, 3, 9, 10 and 12 so each three adjacent numbers cannot create Equa-21. At the right you see the final solution of the game. Let’s do some calculations:

10, 8 and 12 cannot result 21
1, 9 and 3 cannot result 21
10, 8 and 1 cannot result 21
10, 8 and 9 cannot result 21
10, 1 and 9 cannot result 21
8, 1 and 9 cannot result 21
8, 12 and 9 cannot result 21
8, 12 and 3 cannot result 21
8, 9 and 3 cannot result 21
12, 9 and 3 cannot result 21

As we can see, solution for this puzzle is correct.
