### Merry Christmas 2015

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

Merry Christmas! Answers on New Year's!

This was an interesting exercise for me, too. Besides finding good words to use, I originally had eight words, but then realized I only needed seven of them.

After that, I realized that I could have used even fewer if I employed ratios into the mix because the puzzle doesn't actually require you to find all the individual letters.

For example, if you knew the product of CL or CLU without knowing what, say, C was, you would be fine. But I didn't want to use the word CULT in a Christmas puzzle.

If anyone wants to submit a list of fewer than 7 words which can be used to solve this puzzle, I'd like to see it.

Merry Christmas!

### Twelve More Than Two Times X

(Click on the comic if you can't see the full image.)

The song should be longer ... but does anyone really need more of it? The trend is the ''mini lesson'' now, right?

And here are the lyrics, just so they'll be searchable:

Twelve more than two times x gives you eighteen
Doesn't take a lot of work to see
If you use some inverse operations
Then you can solve for x, and it is three.

You subtracted twelve from both sides
And the eighteen became six.
Then don't forget to do division
And you've figured out the work in a few ticks.

(And you know you must do checks!)
You must order operations
After substituting numbers in for x!

Twelve more than two times x gives you eighteen
Doesn't take a lot of work to see
If you use some inverse operations
Then you can solve for x, and it is three.

Merry Christmath!

Stop saying it wrong!

There's a maximum number of times I can hear it said that way, and I'd like to get to the root of the problem!
