# The 9-Letter Word Puzzle - Challenge #4

Thu 19 Dec, 2002 08:54 am
OK wordsmyths, here's the fourth instalment:

I'm looking for a 9-letter English word (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) which matches the following

Clues:
The letters 4, 3, & 2 (in that order) spell a UNIT of measure.
The letters 4, 7, 6 & 9 (in that order) spell the internal MEMORY of a computer.
The letters 8, 1, 4 & 5 (in that order) spell a QUANTITY.

Notes:
Seven of the nine letters are different.
Four of the nine letters are vowels.
The correct word (and ALL sub-clue words) are found in Webster's Dictionary - 10th Edition.
Vowels here, are defined as: A, E, I, O and U.

Happy sleuthing

Is that a sound deduction?

lol, Raggedy! byte/bit, core/cor, core/cup are possibilities, but I can't get a quantity to go with them to make a word!

Let's see, feck has a C in the right position, but with core/cup that spells: EPUCKROFE. With core/cor that spells: EROCKROFE.

A unit of measure can also be a rod or a bit.

Okay, I got it (I think).

UROCHROME - The yellow pigment responsible for the color of urine. (who knew?)

The unit of measure is a COR.
The internal memory of a computer is CORE.
The quantity is MUCH.
