Is there a six-letter word? (Posted on 2005-05-03) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Make the longest word you can make out of these six letters:
A, E, I, N, S, T.


  1. No letter may be used twice.
  2. No other letter or symbol may be used.
  3. It must be a common English word.
  4. No proper nouns.

Penny, your solution answers idea 'b' in nikki's thoughts.  But I have found one that answers that part with a number of letters that is greater than 12.  Idea 'b' is, in fact, what I originally had intended for this problem.

Perhaps idea 'a' could be an extension to the problem.  Or, if someone is really daring, that person could try a combination of a&b.  Good luck to that person!
