 Sudoku Solution Path    R7C9 can only be <6> R1C3 is the only square in row 1 that can be <4> R5C3 can only be <5> R5C2 can only be <2> R5C8 can only be <6> R2C8 is the only square in row 2 that can be <1> R3C6 is the only square in row 3 that can be <7> R3C5 is the only square in row 3 that can be <2> R8C5 can only be <5> R6C6 is the only square in row 6 that can be <6> R7C1 is the only square in row 7 that can be <5> R3C2 is the only square in row 3 that can be <5> R8C9 is the only square in row 8 that can be <4> R8C2 is the only square in row 8 that can be <6> R3C3 is the only square in column 3 that can be <9> R3C9 can only be <8> R6C9 can only be <1> R4C9 can only be <9> R5C7 can only be <4> R5C5 can only be <9> R2C5 can only be <4> R7C5 can only be <1> R4C2 is the only square in row 4 that can be <1> R7C4 is the only square in row 7 that can be <9> R9C3 is the only square in row 9 that can be <1> R1C8 is the only square in column 8 that can be <5> Intersection of row 7 with block 9. The value <2> only appears in one or more of squares R7C7, R7C8 and R7C9 of row 7. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 9. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 9 cannot contain this value.    R8C8 - removing <2> from <238> leaving <38> Intersection of column 8 with block 9. The value <3> only appears in one or more of squares R7C8, R8C8 and R9C8 of column 8. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 9. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 9 cannot contain this value.    R7C7 - removing <3> from <237> leaving <27>    R9C7 - removing <3> from <378> leaving <78> Squares R6C3 and R8C3 in column 3 and R6C8 and R8C8 in column 8 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <8>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 6 and 8 can be removed.    R6C1 - removing <8> from <348> leaving <34> Squares R1C6, R1C7, R2C6 and R2C7 form a Type-4 Unique Rectangle on <39>.    R2C6 - removing <3> from <359> leaving <59>    R2C7 - removing <3> from <369> leaving <69> Squares R6C8 (XY), R7C8 (XZ) and R6C3 (YZ) form an XY-Wing pattern on <3>. All squares that are buddies of both the XZ and YZ squares cannot be <3>.    R7C3 - removing <3> from <37> leaving <7> R7C7 can only be <2> R7C8 can only be <3> R4C7 can only be <8> R8C8 can only be <8> R8C3 can only be <3> R6C8 can only be <2> R9C7 can only be <7> R9C4 can only be <3> R4C1 can only be <4> R6C4 can only be <4> R8C6 can only be <2> R6C3 can only be <8> R9C2 can only be <8> R8C4 can only be <7> R4C6 can only be <5> R2C2 can only be <3> R2C4 can only be <5> R3C1 can only be <6> R2C6 can only be <9> R2C7 can only be <6> R1C6 can only be <3> R2C1 can only be <8> R3C7 can only be <3> R1C7 can only be <9> R4C4 can only be <2> R6C1 can only be <3>
