Average Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #332)

Average Sudoku is very interesting Converse Ruled and Mathematical Sudoku variation. This Average Sudoku Puzzle, I prepared for World Sudoku Championship (WSC) 2017. I tried to create the Ganesha Symbol with the average lines. However I could not make the targeted symbol perfectly with one of the average line breaking the theme. No prize for guessing, this Average Sudoku puzzle was rejected for WSC 2017. So now this Average Sudoku Puzzle, I am publishing as part of Fun With Sudoku Series as 332nd Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.
This Average Sudoku puzzle requires good use of Converse rules. Central big Average line will give a good start and after that it can be solved very easily. I took around 12.16 minutes to solve this Average Sudoku puzzle.

Rules of Average Sudoku Puzzle

Standard Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally if the number in a cell equals the average of its two horizontal neighbors then the cell is marked with a horizontal line. If the number in a cell equals the average of its two vertical neighbors then the cell is marked with a vertical line. All possible lines are marked.

  1. Done in 15 minutes but when checked fm answer then I noticed that position of 2 & 5 in box 3 and 9 is changed
    I think that is due to 3 in r3c6

    1. You are right R3C7 should be 2 instead of 5 otherwise it will lead to average line at R3C6 for 3. I have corrected this Average Sudoku.
