## Word Arithmetic

Example: What number becomes even by subtracting one? Answer: **S-even**

- What number, by adding one, becomes a sound?
- What number, by adding one, becomes isolated?
- What number, by inserting one, becomes finely ground meal?
- What number, by subtracting one, becomes a vegetable growth?
- What number, by subtracting one, becomes a preposition?
- What number, by subtracting one, becomes an interjection used to express disapproval?

How many of these can you figure out? Will unmask answers probably on Wednesday.

T + one = Tone

What number, by adding one, becomes isolated?

eight + h = eighth

What number, by inserting one, becomes finely ground meal?

Four + L = Flour

What number, by subtracting one, becomes a vegetable growth?

Three – h = Tree

What number, by subtracting one, becomes a preposition?

one – e = on

What number, by subtracting one, becomes an interjection used to express disapproval?

one – o = ne

Again the language barrier, but that’s my try.

one lone

four flour

three tree

one on

five fie

Shawn| PUZZLE GRANDMASTER | Profile April 21st, 2008 - 8:38 amSOUND: one + t = tone

ISOLATED: one + l = lone

also ten + e = teen

MEAL: one + p = pone

GROWTH: three – h = tree

PREP.: two – w = to

also four – u = for

INTERJ.: five – v = fie

joe| Profile April 21st, 2008 - 9:43 amI make it

t + one = tone

l + one = lone

l + four = flour

Three – h =Tree

Two – w = to (or four – u = for)

Five – v = fie

zxo| Profile April 21st, 2008 - 9:51 amone -> tone

one -> lone

four -> flour

three -> tree

two -> to

five -> fie

(not sure about that last one)

jasc| Profile April 21st, 2008 - 12:20 pmone tone

one lone

four flour

three tree

two to

five fie

zenitth| Profile April 21st, 2008 - 2:48 pmt + one = tone

l + one = lone

p + one = pone

three – h = tree

two – o = to

five – v = fie!

okay, i’m not so sure about that last one!

What number, by inserting one, becomes finely ground meal?

F(l)our

What number, by subtracting one, becomes a preposition?

I couldn’t get the other 2.

garedhead| Profile April 22nd, 2008 - 2:22 pmT + ONE = TONE

L + ONE = LONE

F + L + OUR = FLOUR

????? T – H – REE = TREE?????

ON – E = ON

FI – V – E = FIE

mello_melon| Profile April 22nd, 2008 - 6:27 pmWhat number, by subtracting one, becomes a vegetable growth? t(h)ree

What number, by subtracting one, becomes a preposition? fo(u)r

RK| Profile April 22nd, 2008 - 7:33 pmInteresting how 2 of you said pone, that’s something I never heard of until now!

Considering the language barrier, that’s impressive, Falwan!

John Lewis Highsmith| Profile April 22nd, 2008 - 8:04 pmTechnically speaking (a) pone is a bread product made using cornmeal.

As for that puzzle I sent you…Your guess is dead right.

RK| Profile April 23rd, 2008 - 8:32 pmI think Suineg must have had some bad Pone, I haven’t seen him for quite some time
