Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can write it as a backtracking problem  label boxes to fill from 07, and successively try to put a number in it: while (boxnumber < 8){ // if 8, are done ...put unused number in box ...test conditions ...if ok boxnumber += 1 // on to the next ...if not erase last try if more numbers to try, try next else backup a level, erase number there, and try next number the annoying part is keeping track of everything.
