Fill-in the Grid Puzzle Solution

 Objective: Arrange the numbers 1 through 8 in the grid below. Rules: No consecutive numbers may appear next to each other either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Also, each number may only be used once.

Solution:

One possible solution is given by:

 It should be noted that this solution is not unique. I believe that there are a total of four solutions. A rather obvious solution is to swap the 5 3 that appear on the top with the 6 4 that appear on the bottom. Alternatively, you can flip all of the answers from left to right. Those combinations give you four solutions. The important thing to recognize is that you need to place 1 and 8 in the middle of the boxes, since each only has one number that they cannot adjoin. If you place any other number in the center, one of the numbers will not fit. As a result, the middle row is completed almost immediately. The rest of the numbers can be filled in accordingly.
