How to Solve Medium Sudoku?

To solve medium Sudoku puzzles, follow these steps:

  • Begin by scanning the puzzle for naked singles (cells with only one possible value).
  • Look for hidden singles by examining rows, columns, and boxes to find cells where a particular digit can only go.
  • Search for naked and hidden subsets within rows, columns, and boxes to eliminate candidates and narrow down possibilities.
  • Use basic solving techniques such as scanning and logical deductions to fill in more cells.
  • If you encounter difficulty, employ more advanced techniques like X-wing or swordfish to uncover additional placements.
  • Continue to apply logic and strategy systematically until the puzzle is solved.

By following these steps and practicing regularly, you can effectively solve medium Sudoku puzzles.

What Do I Need to Solve Medium Sudoku?
