puzzle n^2 -1

Posted 10 years ago
Hello, after reading several documents related to the puzzle n ^ 2-1, I have wondered if it is possible to implement in Mathematica, for I have found for other languages ??but nothing to Mathematica, I hope someone of you can give me an idea, thanks.

The problem is this

This demonstration project is like the game you mention:

A really typical way of solving a problem like this is to write a function that recursively searches for a solution. While you probably can't find an example for your particular problem, you can find it for other problems. I would encourage you to look online for sudoku solvers written in Mathematica and other similar languages. Most sudoku solvers work by recursively searching for a solution. Once you understand how the sudoku solver works, you should be able to apply the same technique to write a solver for your problem.
