# Thread: Missing Tile - Need help

1. ## Missing Tile - Need help

I'm looking for the missing tile. I'm assuming there's some sort-of pattern to the image but I really have no idea where to start.

Thanks!

2. HUH?

You've thrown a 7by7 matrix at us, some of the 49 locations
containing weird numbers, some blank, one with greenish edges;
then we're to find a missing tile? Are you joking?

3. Hahaha, I'm sorry! Those are my thoughts exactly too. This matrix is part of a campus wide game of-sorts. The missing tile I'm looking for is the one with the green edges.
If you can't find anything it's fine, I was just wondering if there was a simple pattern I was missing.

4. What is there to "find"? That green-border one is in position (3,4).
Is there a "number" that should be on it...that's what is to be found?

5. Yes, there's supposed to be a number on it. All that you see is all that I was given to figure out what number is supposed to be on the green missing tile.

It's all very confusing.

6. I would guess that each number from 1 to 7 is supposed to appear in each row and column and the numbers in the boxes represent the product of the numbers contained within that certain area.

7. Actually its only the product is there is a * symbol next to the number. Some have + some have minus. That's the operation you gotta use.

8. Epic Win. This was done using my method.

9. Hmmm...tell me: why/how are 3*, 5*, 294* and 12+ all representing "1" ?

They're not...

I'll give you a hint. Look at the dotted edges and the symbols next to the numbers. * means product.

How are they related..?

Use the 90* in the top left corner as an example for yourself

11. WOW! I am throughly impressed! (Also thank you for your explanation, I understand how it works now. Although I would have never seen that myself.)

Thank you again!
