Kakuro Solving Techniqes

Technique 2 :

Cross reference
Find 2 intersecting runs and compare the clue number combinations for each. Any values which appear in the combinations for both runs are candidates for the square on which the runs intersect.

In this example, the "down" clue is 6, which has only 1 combination (1+2+3), whereas the "across" clue 20, has 4 combinations (3+8+9, 4+7+9, 5+6+9 and 5+7+8). However, the only common number in both sets of combinations is 3, therefore the intersection square must be 3.
