Logic Grid Word Problem Worksheet

This worksheet presents a mathematical puzzle where the numbers 1 to 6 must be placed in a cross-shaped grid so that the sums of the numbers in both the row and the column are equal to 11. Two of the numbers have already been placed in the grid, and one of the boxes is marked with a question mark, indicating that the student must determine which of the remaining numbers fits there. The condition is that each number can only be used once in the grid.

The worksheet is aimed at teaching students number placement strategies within a set of constraints, emphasizing the use of addition and the concept of unique solutions in a puzzle format. It encourages students to engage in trial and error, logical deduction, and arithmetic calculation to arrive at the correct placement of numbers. This type of problem enhances critical thinking skills and supports the development of a student’s ability to solve complex problems systematically.
