algebra square puzzle revised

I have revised the algebra square puzzle that I posted a few weeks ago. See attached Excel file.

I used trial and error to develop these puzzles. I know that there is a lot of mathematics and programming involved creating puzzles of this type. I would appreciate any assistance anyone can give me.

My puzzles were inspired by the popular KenKenĀ® puzzles. I disclaim any association with Nextoy, LLC or the KenKen Puzzle Company.

Please feel free to modify my puzzles to suit your classroom needs. You can share them with your colleagues. In order to print the puzzles, open the Excel file and then enable macros. Then press CTRL-t. Five different puzzles will be printed. The solution to each puzzle appears at the bottom of the page. I slice off the solutions and save them in case students have difficulty solving the puzzle. Each puzzle is matched to its solution using a form number.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improving the puzzles or need any assistance using the Excel macro.
