- Look for repeating letter patterns.

### What is the technique to solve Sudoku?

There are more than a few techniques to solve a Sudoku puzzle, but per Conceptis Puzzles, the easiest way to a Sudoku solution is to, “Scan rows and columns within each triple-box area, eliminating numbers or squares and finding situations where only a single number can fit into a single square.” If you’re looking to …

**How hard is advent of code?**

The difficulty and subject matter varies throughout each event. Very generally, the puzzles get more difficult over time, but your specific skillset will make each puzzle significantly easier or harder for you than someone else.

**Can you crack the code only geniuses can solve?**

We know the code is 0x2. If the middle number was 4, then 645 would have one correct number in the correct position. Since it does not, and we know 6 is incorrect, it must be that 5 is the correct number. Thus the number is 052.

#### How do you fill in codeword?
