Use a scrap paper-Oscar

Use dashes (-) to mark posible numbers on the box as a code: top left corner=1, top middle=2, top right corner=3, bottom left corner=4, bottom middle=5, bottom right corner=6. Once you figure it out, it helps organize.-Oscar

Each number must be one time in one box. First I was putting in any number and looking if it could work, when it didn't work I was changing the numbers and trying it again until I found my solution.-Bruno

Divide by two-Oscar
You only need to calculate sixteen minus one to get the right answer.-Bruno

#2
"my digits a pair, when multiplied there, make a cube and a square out of me"- this means, that when you multiply the two digits, the number you get has to be able to be cubed AND squared.

First I was writing all numbers divisible by eleven until 99, then I was eliminating the odd numbers. I was looking at the remaining numbers to find out which two digits can be cubed and squared. -Bruno

#3
I was writing the numbers and x in order. 5 seemed to be possibly the median, one number had to occur twice - I was putting 5 in that place and then calculating the mean with x substituted by 5 - and it worked. - Bruno

#4
This took me a long time - I was simply figuring out how to do it. -Bruno
