In the on-air puzzle, every answer is the name of a well-known company. You must name the company from its anagram. For example, given "Coal plus A," the answer would be, "Alcoa."

Challenge from Last Week: Take the equation 5 + 5 + 5 = 550. Make this equation true by adding a single line. Hint: The answer is not to put a slash through the equal sign to make it "not equal."

Answer: Convert either "+" sign into a 4 by drawing a diagonal line connecting its top and left points. Thus, 545 + 5 = 550.

Winner: John O'Donoghue from Eugene, Ore.

This Week's Challenge: Take the phrase, Yeshiva Center, a place of Jewish studies, rearrange these 13 letters to name a well-known movie. It has three words in its name. What movie is it?
