If you find mathematics offensive, please click the back button now.

Mathematical Maelström is a rather tricky cross-number puzzle, in which the clues take the form of equations.

• “Across” and “Down” are not specified as each letter only corresponds to one answer.

• No number begins with zero.

• A calculator could come in handy!

Below is the latest Mathematical Maelström puzzle to celebrate 2016, a triangular year! The first person to solve the puzzle correctly wins a trip for two to Bermuda (only kidding). If you’d like to print it out (which you probably will), please click here.

If you think you’ve done it, or you’ve come to grief in the Bermuda Triangle, here is the solution.
