Anagrams

Post by testitemqlstudop » March 1st, 2019, 6:44 pm

(The Entity Valkyrie thread grew profoundly off-topic, so that's that.)

Rules:

- no more than 5 people's puzzles a a time
- puzzles are at most 20 anagrams

here's the last one from that thread

Code: Select all

ITCHING SEWEN                      (hint: yl) - SOLVED
CHALDEAN POTENT                    (hint: very natural) - SOLVED
YOVEN URGE LOSH                    (hint: long Moosey)
THUGGEE RIFI                       (hint: natural) - SOLVED
REDTAIL GRIN                       (hint: block + (in the name) puffer)
FORMULAE                           (should be very easy) - SOLVED
WITCHING TALL ALOW                 (hint: hisssssssss) - SOLVED
GONDOLA DICK                       (hint: oscillator)
TUBBISH TWIN SUMO                  (hint: first word) - SOLVED

Then the puzzle you gave was incorrect — "a star eta" has an extra A and is missing a G.

x₁=ηx
V*_η=c²√(Λη)
K=(Λu²)/2
Pₐ=1−1/(∫^∞_t₀(p(t)ˡ⁽ᵗ⁾)dt)
