In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Metamorphosis

Hi;

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

Re: Metamorphosis

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
TOO

I have a feeling I cannot use a person's name.  We'll have to check with bobbym.

Re: Metamorphosis

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.

BUTTER ---- HIDDEN
