    Hmm .. the penpa automatic answer checking isn’t telling me I’m correct, but I haven’t found anything wrong with my answer. I’ll have to take a look at the solution when it’s posted.

      Hi Jackson: As I noted in a comment on a prior Araf, there is a potential failure mode for Penpa where you may have drawn a green border on the outside edge (but under the bold black border) which would be unexpected in the solution.

      So if you have the correct solution and didn’t miss an edge, this outside edge error may have happened. We will consider an alternate visual formatting of these grids to remove this in potential issue in future Araf posts.
