Clueless (Posted on 2005-03-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I gave my niece and nephew the following puzzler:

A: Draw a 3x3 grid, with the boxes labeled 1 through 9 in the usual order (left to right; top to bottom).

B:For each of the following instructions you must write a number, greater than 10, starting in one box and going across (left to right) or down, with one digit to each box. Your answers should fill the grid, with no two answers overlapping.

C:Starting with a box whose number is a square, write a square number.

D:Starting with a box whose number is a cube, write a cube number.

E:Starting in a box whose number is prime, write a prime number whose digits add up to an even number.

F:Starting with a box whose number is even, write an even number

Unfortunately, one of the copies of my instructions had part F completely missing. Each child turned in a 3x3 grid which was correct for the version they had been given. By coincidence, they turned in identical grids.

How did they fill out their grids?
