The 3 letters of the word hat
plus one additional letter can create
many new valid English words e.g. heat, Utah
a. How many?
b. Same question for "hat+2": like yacht, Tahoe etc.
Rem: The additional letter(s) may be (not need to be) one(or two) of the h,a,t letters, in case b. nothing precludes adding twice the same letter.
(In reply to some computer findings
At least seven words can be added to Charlie's list for
part A (42+):
hait, taha, tanh, tash, tath, thar, wath
At least thirty words can be added to Charlie's list for
part B (173+):
ahent, ahint, ashet, bahut, beath, chaft, chota, eathe, ethal, haint,
haith, hasta, hault, heast, hiant, haint, haith, hasta, hault, heast,
hiant, hoast, hutia, meath, tahli, thawy, thema, thrae, tuath, waths
