Mixed Doubles (Posted on 2012-06-04) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The crossword below is special. Each answer has two clues. Your goal is to find two clues that have the same answer. Then add up their numbers, and place the answer in the appropriate box in the diagram.

For example, if the clue for 7-across is "view above (2 words)" and the clue for 21-across is "consult the textbook (2 words)", the answer for both clues would be LOOKUP. Since 7+21=28, you would fill in LOOKUP in the diagram in 28-across.

Can you solve this?

I agree; not all the clues are perfect.  It was rather difficult to come up with a second clue for certain answers.

I've been fascinated by the "Mixed Doubles" variety of crossword for years.  I recently decided I would attempt to create one, and this puzzle is the result.

Thanks for the critique; it will help me make the next one better! :D
