Hat #10 (Posted on 2015-01-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The 3 letters of the word hat plus one additional letter can create
many new valid English words e.g. heat, Utah etc.

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.
