  2. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. First of all, list all the vowels in one column and then all the consonants. That will make it easier to see what you might eliminate!

  3. Now you have 21 letters total, but you are to subtract 5, so you will end up with one word with 16 letters. There are 8 vowels and 13 consonants.

    vowels: eeeee ii o
    consonants: c f h l l p r r s t t t v

    If I have time later, I'll come back to this!
