The answer is most likely If we look at the numbers in the 1st triangle The 2nd triangle Lastly the 3rd triangle(equivalent to 2nd triangle)

The Vowelburger™ Side Dishes act as an alternative to the usual letter-based diet, being made entirely of: In particular, the top and bottom layers of these dishes are: Producing: Make sure you take advantage of our introductory offer - each side dish is just $1.97! 8 I solved the problem via integer linear programming, and Here are optimal values for$n\times n$grids with$n \le 10$: \begin{matrix} n &1 &2 &3 &4 &5 &6 &7 &8 &9 &10 \\ \hline \text{maximum} &1 &3 &8 &12 &19 &25 &37 &45 &59 &71 \\ \end{matrix} By the way, you lifted your ... 8 8 Independently of @Randal'Thor's answer (which was posted in its original form just a few minutes before this one), I have explanations for all 16 puzzles (15 solid, 1 less so), and must say from the off: The puzzles resolve as follows (I am least sure on #6): Altogether, these spell out: 7 The rule is: Thanks to @Stiv, we also know that: Starting with 0: You can't go further because This may not be all there is to it though. 6 The answer is Because 6 I am not sure if this warrants its own answer, but I suspect you are calling them This is because The name and the property might not be related too directly because arguably the name is much easier to spot than the property, and should thus not give away too much of the actual puzzle. EDIT: The connection might be via 5 Well, judging from the hint, each$[m\ast n]$means In our case, we seem to have only$[n\ast n]$, in which case So rewriting all the expressions we've been given: Word 1 (2 letters):$[3*3]+[1*1]+[2*2]+[2*2]$Word 2 (5 letters):$((-[1*1] + [3*3] + [4*4] + [8*8] + [27*27]) \cdot [2*2] + [1*1] + [1*1] + [5*5] \cdot [27*27]) \cdot [2*2]\$ Word 3 (2 ...

I think the letters are all Based off your hint: Going off your title: Using this idea for DBE should mean the ??? is:

Perhaps the answer is Because And the fact that We can deduce the answer: Which matches Hint 6 in that (Those not after "-" is the original text):

I don't get the pattern but I have some words which could fit the given clues. They don't really follow vowelburger rules other than maintaining the first and last letter. Not sure whether that is allowed considering they are side dishes and not burgers. I mainly just wanna keep this question alive so I can find out the actual answer. :P Short Delete ...

There are possibilities. Explanation: For the bonus question:

Going through the sixteen clues (four or five I still couldn't solve completely): Note that most of these are actually number puzzles in disguise :-) Overall: So I should say:

This is a With the key Which decides the cipher text to the required ‘THIS PHRASE IS VALID’ The actual intended solution was:

The answer is most likely Because
