KenKen puzzle

Fill in the empty squares so that each row and column contains the numerals 1-4. The heavy outlined shapes are cages; the top left corner of each cage has a target solution and an operation. The numbers entered in the cage must combine (in any order) to produce the target solution using the operation specified. KenKen puzzles were created by Tetsuya Miyamoto.
