 Sudoku Solution Path    Sudoku Puzzle © Kevin Stone R1C6 can only be <8> R4C1 can only be <6> R4C9 can only be <8> R5C5 can only be <6> R6C9 can only be <2> R9C6 can only be <7> R6C1 can only be <9> R1C3 is the only square in row 1 that can be <6> R2C8 is the only square in row 2 that can be <8> R2C7 is the only square in row 2 that can be <5> R5C2 is the only square in row 5 that can be <4> R8C2 is the only square in row 8 that can be <6> R8C5 is the only square in row 8 that can be <8> R8C8 is the only square in row 8 that can be <4> R9C9 is the only square in row 9 that can be <5> R5C8 is the only square in row 5 that can be <5> R9C1 is the only square in row 9 that can be <8> Intersection of row 1 with block 2. The value <9> only appears in one or more of squares R1C4, R1C5 and R1C6 of row 1. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 2. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 2 cannot contain this value.    R2C5 - removing <9> from <179> leaving <17> Squares R3C2 and R7C2 in column 2 and R3C8 and R7C8 in column 8 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <2>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 3 and 7 can be removed.    R3C1 - removing <2> from <1237> leaving <137>    R7C1 - removing <2> from <127> leaving <17>    R7C5 - removing <2> from <29> leaving <9> R9C4 can only be <4> R9C5 can only be <2> R1C4 can only be <9> R9C7 can only be <1> R9C3 can only be <9> R2C2 is the only square in row 2 that can be <9> Squares R5C9 and R7C9 in column 9 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <37>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.    R1C9 - removing <3> from <134> leaving <14>    R3C9 - removing <3> from <134> leaving <14> Squares R1C5 and R1C9 in row 1 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <14>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.    R1C1 - removing <1> from <123> leaving <23> Squares R1C5, R1C9, R3C5 and R3C9 form a Type-1 Unique Rectangle on <14>.    R3C5 - removing <14> from <147> leaving <7> R2C5 can only be <1> R2C3 can only be <7> R1C5 can only be <4> R1C9 can only be <1> R3C9 can only be <4> R8C3 can only be <2> R8C7 can only be <7> R5C3 can only be <1> R7C2 can only be <1> R5C7 can only be <3> R7C9 can only be <3> R5C1 can only be <2> R5C9 can only be <7> R1C7 can only be <2> R7C1 can only be <7> R3C2 can only be <2> R7C8 can only be <2> R1C1 can only be <3> R3C8 can only be <3> R3C1 can only be <1>
