 I don't really see how it's possible...a row is across right? (as opposed to a column being up and down) So I see on the first row (3,7,5) how it =15, but the next two (2 and 4) don't come close, but the last one (6,8,1) that =15. Unless you mean every LINE should equal 15... because then it all works, but not every row. Try being a bit more specific!

 >I don't really see how it's possible...a row is across >right? Allow some leeway. It's the first grade we are talking here about. A "row" in the message stands for a series of letters on a straight line segment. A column falls under this definition.
