RE: Puzzles.
Starting with AT, add a letter and shuffle to make a new word each time and continue until you reach CREATURE.

RE: Puzzles.
In the solution that I have, somewhere along the 'path', there is a word related to a 'volcano' and yet another is 'a tiny animal (?)'.

Hint: Genesis 9:7

While you solve it (I hope), here's some from a crossword puzzle. Explain.
- Group makes former U.S. President switch sides finally (6) [6 letter word]
- Big business at a disadvantage with you and me (8)
- Poles escaped from East Berlin, maybe free (8)

RE: Puzzles.
The number after 7030 is 21219.
The pattern is (x7 +9).

Crossword answers:
1) US President = Carter; switch sides (r -> l); So Carter becomes CARTEL ( a group)
2) business = Company - short {CO}; disadvantage = {LOSS} ; you and me = {US}; Put them together > COLOSSUS
3) Poles = {NS}; escaped from East Berlin =>remove 'n' and 's'; EAT BERLI => LIBERATE
New one:
By what number less than 1000 must 43259 be multiplied, so that the last three figures to the right of the product may be 437. (i.e, 43259 X ? = ...437 )

RE: Puzzles.
743.
Let the number be abc
c is clearly 3, for only 9*3 results in last digit 7.
Proceeding likewise, we arrive at the answer.
A girl in white socks is wearing a pair of white shoes,
a girl in black socks is wearing a pair of black shoes, and
a girl in red socks is wearing a pair of red shoes.
They decide to try on each others' shoes.
When they are done, each girl has on one shoe from each of the other two girls.

How many shoes will you have to look at to know which color of shoe
each girl is wearing on each foot; i.e., which color shoe each girl
wears on her right foot and which color shoe each girl wears on her
left foot ?

Note: When you look at a shoe, you can see that girl's sock color.
