Equal Product Sudoku appeared recently in Math Variation Sudoku Mahabharat 2016 round. I created this puzzle while practicing for this championship. Equal Product Sudoku is a very interesting Sudoku variation in which diagonally touching numbers have the same product as other diagonally touching numbers in the same 2x2 square. One has to be very careful while solving this Sudoku type as multiplying numbers can have many different combinations and missing even a single combination will lead to getting the wrong solution. Today's Equal Product Sudoku is a very interesting puzzle that requires a lot of calculations to be done before putting in the first few numbers. After putting in some numbers the puzzle will proceed. However, variation rules are used till the end. This is a tough puzzle and is only for experienced players. Beginners should try to avoid solving this puzzle as they will find this puzzle very tough. One way to solve this puzzle I found that first placing the prime numbers like 5 or 7 as these numbers cannot be part of the equal product region. Once a few of these prime numbers are marked then one can proceed to see the possibilities which satisfy the equal product equations.
