Like sudoku, kakuro is
a crossword puzzle using numbers.
Fill in the squares
using the numbers 1 to 9.
Do not repeat a
number in consecutive boxes.
The total of each
consecutive box must be equal to the number attached to that row

document contains only the combinations with one solution

Fill in each cell with a number from 1 to 9
A row contains each digit only once
A column contains each digit only once
A sub grid (region) contains each digit only once
