Thermo variant #40: Readable Thermos
(Eingestellt am 27. Juni 2022, 14:00 Uhr von djorr)
I've made a few thermo variants. All are standard thermo sudokus + an extra rule. Check out the others using the following link:
Thermo Variant Series puzzles
Rules: Normal sudoku rules apply. Along thermometers, digits must increase from the bulb end.
Variant: If you add up the digits along a thermometer, the value will be a two-digit number. The digits of this number must appear on that same thermo, with the ten's digit closer to the bulb and the one's digit closer to the tip.
The thermo 2-4-6-7-8 is valid because the digits sum to 27 and the thermo contains a 2 and a 7 in that order.
The thermo 1-2-5-6-7 is not valid because the digits sum to 21 and, although the digits are there, they are not in the right order.
The thermo 1-2-3-4-5 is valid because the sum is 15 and the thermo contains a 1 and a 5 in that order.

This was pretty challenging! I think the setting is great but the mental arithmetic on the thermos is a bit too hard.
I really couldn't do it without using a program to get all the options. I understood some of the math implications, but perhaps there was a trick I missed...
Thanks for the feedback zegres! I will put a hidden comment here to explain some of the logic. There is definitely some tricks to notice when solving these thermos.
