What Word 5

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

I have 7 letters.

1-2-3-4-5-6-7

Letters 1-2-6-3-5-4-7 mean the thickness of something.
Letters 7-2-4-5 mean a legendary large, hairy creature that is said to inhabit the Himalayas.
Letters 7-2-3 mean something that is said to show approval, which you wouldn't be saying if you were trying to 1-2-6-7 something.
Letters 4-5-2-1 mean that everything is equal.

The whole word means a predetermined course of events.




What Next?

Really fun quiz. Liked the wordplay!

First word - did you mean DENSITY for thickness? I don't get DESTINY there.

good teaser, i like the ones i can get.

I know this is nitpicking a little - but the thickness of something is not an accurate definition for density. A 2" sheet of styrofoam is much thicker than a 1/2" sheet of steel, but the steel is far denser.

Good point to the above comment. I enjoyed doing this, but it was easy with the clue about the entire word. Got that right away!

elentir, you are right , but outside of that box is the density or thickness of a liquid. Ez quiz Took more time to read it than solve it

I don't think it even holds for liquids. From what I understand, and I may be wrong in this assumption, thickness equates to viscosity in liquids. If so, honey is far thicker than mercury. And again, mercury is far denser.

elintir is correct. Viscosity is resistance to flow, or thickness, of a liquid.

Density is, literally, mass/volume. It could very loosely be defined as the how heavy something is, but it's a bit of a stretch to equate it to thickness.

Still, it was a fun quiz.

Are we discussing the teaser or the density of some peoples brains?

I liked this one. The density thing is a little nitpicky.

I don't think the density thing is nitpicky. I think that especially as it was the first clue and I am probably not the only one who went about it by trying to solve each clue in order, that it would have been nice if the clue wasn't outright wrong. As several people have pointed out the definition of density is not in any way a means of describing the thickness of something. As such without the last clue I would have never gotten this one, b/c I would have never considered "density" as a possible answer to the first clue.

I agree, but it is still a valid point to solving the teaser correctly. Good job, nonetheless. Thanks for posting.

I guess I went about it all wrong. I got Yeti first, then yes, that helped me get deny, and from there I had it made. I got it right, I enjoyed it.

May 19, 2009

I don't think there was a wrong way to go about solving this. Although yeti probably would've gotten me there, taking longer, I went straight to the last word, destiny, and just fit the others in to check them. Fun & easy. Thanks for contributing.

EZ PZ. Fun though!!

I enjoyed this so much I went back and did all your other "What Word" teasers. Loved them all!

I thought this was a fun teaser and I enjoyed doing it, but I agree with what has been said about density NOT being the thickness of something. Density is the mass divided by the volume... how is that a thickness???
kwelchansAus*

From Roget's Thesaurus:

density


noun
The quality, condition, or degree of being thick: compactness, solidity, thickness. See thick
j279Aus*
May 19, 2009

Well, I dealt with taking density measurements and analyzing density at my last job, and I have never heard of it meaning the same thing as thinkness...
j279Aus*
May 19, 2009

oops, I meant "thickness", not "thinkness".
FatHeadAus*
May 19, 2009

That was way too easy! At least with that last clue.
BastetA*
May 19, 2009

Very easy, but a lot of fun. It reminded me a little of a cryptogram, but with numbers instead of letters.

I thought the last one was same.

You people are way to smart for me. I had no idea what we were supposed to do with those numbersa, but then I am the oldest here and out of the loop.

good puzzle due to unique way to solve.. and this to naysayers LOL

I came up with the word "density" right away, and solved the rest in short order. It didn't even dawn on me that density might not accurately fit the clue, until I read the other comments - then I had to think back to my high-school physics class (well over 50 years ago) and I guess they are probably right. I wonder why that was the first word that popped into my head? I found the teaser easy, but since I love word games, also found it interesting and unique. - I give it 5 stars!!

Thought it was fun and had no problem solving it at all. I liked it.

RE: DENSITY

I believe the Thesaurus reference of Density being equivalent to thickness is referring to the definition of density as a measure of ones mental capacity.
Not a physical measurement of an object.

i.e. "THICK AS A BRICK"
