Hugs and Kisses, OXOXOXOXOXOXOX, these were some of my stepmother’s favorite things. This week in anticipation of Valentine’s Day next week, I’ve included both an X puzzle and this O puzzle. Valentine’s Day was also my dad’s and my stepmother’s wedding anniversary, and she always made sure it was a special day for everyone who lived in our house. I’m sure that you also have many happy Valentine’s Day memories.

To solve this O puzzle, consider the clues given in the puzzle. Then write the numbers 1-12 in the top row and again in the first column so that the puzzle becomes a multiplication table.

This week’s puzzles are available in an excel file here. If you have a spreadsheet program on your computer, you can access it. If you enable editing in excel, you can type your answers directly onto the puzzle, and you can also easily print the puzzles.

Here are the factors for last week’s level 4 Puzzle:

Here is one way those factors could be found:
