10. Teen? (7 + 9 - 6 = sixteen - six = teen)

10. What 7 + 9 - 6 is! (4)

even?

7 + 9 = sevenIX - sIX = even

Real cute. How does it work, like what's the direct?

I hear you Denis because it doesn't seem to work. I think "is" is the direct. 7+9-6 = 10, which is even and CCb's solution is the other way.

I trusted this one because it's by my favorite constructor.

7 + 9 - 6 is divisible by 2 (4)

direct = divisible by 2 !

And a rewrite better than the original.

Isn't the original a (rare) true &lit? (See Pandora's "terribly angered" example) think

Thought it was very clever - CCb's wordplay solve gives "even", and the full clue ("What 7 + 9 - 6 is!") satisfies the &lit (10 is even)

I agree that it's very clever, Rog and I'm glad you liked it. For some reason, it just doesn't sit 100% well with me.

Since fifty-fifty is a definition of even:

50 - 50 = 7 + 9 - 6 ?

Interesting, not to mention mind-racking, clues! Wouldn't it be 50/50 though?

50 - 50 looks like 50 minus 50. 50/50 could work but also looks like 50 divided by 50. I like fifty-fifty or 50-50 (no spaces).
