You're out to make each horizontal, vertical, and diagonal line of four numbers equal the same number, so first you need to find that number.

The total is there for you to find, so just examine the square until you see it.

One diagonal string of numbers appears to be in place already. The numbers within it add up to 18.

Now that you know each string of numbers needs to add up to 18, all you need to do is fill in the blank spaces with the correct tiles. As you start filling in spaces on the square, you'll be left with fewer and fewer squares to work with.

US Version

Lay down a line, make sure it totals 18, and then keep on working with what you've got. You'll make your way to the solution sooner or later.
