Brain Game: Math Square #111

As has become custom on Monday, today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game is a new Monday Math Square. NOTE: We're actively working on ways to make the Math Square (and other Brain Game puzzles) interactive so that you can solve them on-screen. We'll keep you posted on the results. Good luck with today's puzzle!

The nine white squares inside the main red grid should be filled with the digits 1 through 9. Each digit should appear only once in this main grid (the red square). Place the digits 1 through 9 in their correct spots so that the mathematical equations work both across and down.

Here is the SOLUTION.

NOTE: These puzzles rarely (but occasionally) have alternate solutions that fit the rules. If you find one of these, first make sure that you've followed the instructions to the letter, then pat yourself on the back (and feel free to share your numbers with us in the comments).

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
