6x6 KenKen*

Yesterday's puzzle was a bit harder than typical for Wednesday, in part because I believed there was a simpler solution path than there actually was (each week I seem to prove at least once that I'm not mistake free - sorry). However, the goal yesterday was to make a puzzle that featured subtraction heavily and that certainly was true whether it was harder than intended or not.

This puzzle does the same with division with a pseudo-symmetric diagonal made up of several large divisions. Until I post a second variation that reasonably allows all cells to have division occurring, this is likely about how densely you can use division in a KenKen* without having a trivial puzzle or using lots of two-cell cages with division by 1.
