    math puzzle

    the following table is given


    Code:
             A      B      C      D      sum
    1       24    ...    ...    ...      37
    2      ...    ...     35    ...      61
    3      ...     43    ...     14      70
    4      ...    ...     17    ...      31
    sum     42     69     62     26
    insert the numbers 1 to 11 into the empty spots in the grid (each occurs only once).
    the red numbers are the sums of the numbers touching it (i.e. 24 = B1+B2+A2) -- not taking other red numbers into account.
    the green numbers are the sum of all the numbers in one line or column (i.e. 24+B1+C1+D1 = 37).
    complete the table.

    send any solutions to me per PM

    Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened.

    Only one actually

    And I did it without the help of any tools, no calculator or anything.

    Thanks dfx, I can sleep less than 4 hours now because of you. You deserve some serious spanking

    Got a query ... if "the red numbers are the sums of the numbers touching it (i.e. 24 = B1+B2+A2)" then how shall 43=A3+A4+B4 when the highest number that can be inserted is 11?
    DONT DRINK AND DRIVE

    because 6 squares are touching the 43: A2, B2, A3, C3, A4 and B4. gotta sum those all up.
