In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Hi;

wet to tin is illegal. You must only change one letter.

I'll do it then you've got an example:

GET change the T
GEM change the G
HEM change the E
HIM change the H
TIM change the I
TOM change the M

hi Stefy,

Here's one for you.  Every word must contain a double letter.  When you change that double, you may change both in one go.
