### Re: Bafflers?

Thanks for the problem. I feel it was an easy one.

Hi;

I believe that the solution given there is correct.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.

Yes, it took me 10 minutes to just copy the picture. Another 10 to solve it. Another ten to post it.
