    By changing one letter at a time in each word without permuting letters, leaving two other common English words, how many changes are required to get from
    TEST POLL
    to
    MATT MATT
    I got it in five substitutions for each word. Can anyone do it in fewer? Three is the theoretical minimum for TEST->MATT; four for POLL->MATT. All words have to be in The Official Scrabble Players Dictionary (Fourth Edition).

    PhiPi wins for the most complicated perturbation yet.

    Can I say "perturbation" on TV?



    Fibonacci sequence, anyone?

    Yeah, you know you're in trouble when you don't even understand the question.

    Apparently, Phil is explanation-challenged. So here's an example, going from COG to HUB:
    COG
    HOG
    HUG
    HUB
    (I was gonna use STAMP to PROPS for the example but couldn't find a route.)

    POLL
    MOLL
    MALL
    MALT
    MATT

    Best I could come up with for POLL->MATT
    (assuming moll is in Scrabble dictionary, don't have mine handy)

    The other appears harder.

    Rick,

    Yup, MOLL is in there. You beat me by one and hit the theoretical minimum! I had:
    POLL
    POLE
    PALE
    MALE
    MALT
    MATT

    Can PHIL become RICK in just 4 moves? A prickly problem, to be sure.
