I have a short question:

Why does the Wrong puzzle not point out where the change in number is?  Sometimes, I spend a huge chunk of time time trying to figure out the location of the wrong, rather than solving for the wrong.

That's meant to be part of the challenge.  It's the same problem you would have if you got the puzzle wrong the first time around by putting too many or too few lines around one number: first you find the mistake, then you fix it.  So if you get good at the Wrongs, you'll be able to recover from that mistake if you make it in a real puzzle.

I used to take much longer to find the wrong (I'm still not fast ).  Practice helps.  I discovered several sorts of patterns I'd overlook for a long time, and learning to look for those sped up wrong finding a lot.
