3D Sudoku - Part I (Posted on 2006-03-06) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Imagine a 3x3x3 cube made of 27 little cubies. Imagine each of these cubies has a number 1 through 9 in it. No two cubies in a plane have the same number. A plane is a horizontal, vertical(left-right), or vertical(up-down) cross-section of 9 cubies.

You know the numbers in some of the cubies. What are the others?
