# Which node(s) does 0 connect with in this simple graph?

If we add 0 as a node to the graph below, which node(s) will it connect to?

Hint 0

I've made another puzzle before, which may give clues if you begin to bore.

Hint 1

If your hair you begin to tear out, then perhaps you should check this out.

Hint 2

My hints usually start at 1, but this once let's have fun.

• Hi Galen! I was wondering if you could comment on the discussion in El-Guest's answer. Thanks! And thank you for the cool puzzle :)

• @stux I've commented on what I'm guessing you'd like me to address. I'm glad you enjoyed the puzzle. :) Commented Apr 28, 2020 at 23:58

It should connect to

Nothing, because all nodes are connected to other nodes that share a word.

Note that

one connects to twenty-one, seventy-one and one hundred, but not to seventeen. None of these nodes have “zero” in their names, and so it is not connected.

• Hint 1 helped work out the difference between my first answer and my second answer, @Galen Commented Apr 25, 2020 at 19:03
• (spoiler) based on this answer, shouldn't 7 and 17 be connected?

• Technically yes, but I just took them as two separate examples of graphs — ie. to help us note clearly that 17 was not connected to 71, 21, 1, or 100. Not sure if that was OP’s intention as well. Commented Apr 26, 2020 at 12:48
