In this teaser, I have given you a 9-letter word. Your job is to break up this word into 9 separate letters and place them on the dashes to spell a 7-letter word, a 5-letter word, and a 3-letter word. You can use each letter only once.

Very nice teaser. It helps that there are not too many three letter words with a P in the middle.

I was close, but no cigar. I used vestige and spa from the get go, but was hung up on crush, crash, trash,brush and on and on. I never got it but it was great fun trying. Thanks

I had Ape instead of spa, but i got prism and i knew th first word started with v, but i couldn't make it fit.

I started with ape, then switched to spa, but had priss instead of prism, so could never get the first word. If I'd tried to work it out on paper instead of just in my head, I might have done better, but I don't know. Fun trying, though.

How can I get vestige but not spa?
Well must need more coffee!

That was fun!

Somehow when I looked at the first word , vestige popped right into my head, and the rest fell into place pretty quickly.

Still, it was a challenge without being impossible.

Thanks!

I had spa, and knew the first word started with v, but then my brain shut down. Very good puzzle, Jazz, as usual. Thanks.

That was a blast. Like the some of the others I started at the bottom.
Last word Spa from there it was fun.
I got it, I got it, I got. Sound childish well to you.
Thanks for a great teaser. Hope to see many more.

Good one! I had ape at first too,
but hated using 2 vowels.
Finally got it - glad I stuck to it.
Sometimes I give up too quickly! Thanks Jazz!

Word games, spelling, my kind of puzzle! Easy, easy since I'm a big crossword and jumble fan. I LOVED IT!

Great one! I got Vestige first as neither of the other words could have a V in them. Then I got the two other words shortly after I got Vestige.
