A Latin Square
The Sudoku grid is very similar to a latin square. A Latin square is an n x n table that is filled with different symbols
so that each symbol occurs only once in each row and once in each column.
Here are a couple of examples.
Though note there are less solution grids available for Sudoku, than there are Latin squares.
The reason for this is that sudoku has multiple regions (3 x 3 in standard sudoku), where as with latin squares you're only working with one. To solve sudoku each 3 x 3 mini grid must also contain the numbers 1–9. Look at the example below.
Even so there are litterally endless solution grids for the Sudoku puzzle.
In 2005 a man by the name of Bertram Felgenhauer calculated the number to be about 6,670,903,752,021,072,936,960.
It has not yet been calculated how many solution grids there are for the 16 x 16 Sudoku puzzle. There are some 9 x9 grids
that can be recreated into other grids.
This can be done by
(1) rotating the grid,
(2) permuting some columns and rows
(3) changing around the numbers.
In 2005 Frazer Jarvis and Ed Russell calculated the amount of different Sudoku grids to total of 5,472,730,538.
