### Word Puzzle.

Is it possible to create a three by three square of letters, with words in every direction (that is reading backwards and forwards) without repeating a letter? ARE/ERA seems an obvious entry, but SHE/EHS for instance might give more scope?

You can't solve a problem by stating a tautology, Nyktos. Everyone knows 1 or -1 is also called a unit.
But all prime numbers have 1 or -1 as a factor. As do all numbers (except possibly zero)

0 is odd. 1+1=3, 3+3=7, 5+5=11, 7+7=15, 9+9=19, 11+11=33. Addition always rounds up to the next odd number, even when the odd number is in the tens place as evidenced by 11+11=33.
