**Shallow Waters** is a logic puzzle from Puzzle Rojak 1. The logic puzzle involves a large grid with squares, some of which are yellow, divided into regions. There is also another diagram with squares and a checksum list at the bottom.

## Solve Path[edit | edit source]

Solving the initial logic puzzle to fill the grid and reading from the yellow squares in binary yields HAMMING SEVEN FOUR. The grid can then be divided into parts of seven bits in which Hamming(7,4) can be applied such that one bit can be changed as part of the self-correction. Binary can then be reused to get READ CORRECTED BITS AND EXTRACT THE ANSWER, and doing so with binary again gets the answer.

## Puzzle Elements[edit | edit source]

Binary - Used for extraction in three different instances.
