Going to do it in excel.

(At least, it looks right to me.) A quick riddle. No doubt it will pose no problem to you lot. We are little creatures; all of us have different features. One of us in glass is set; one of us you'll find in jet. Another you may see in tin, and the fourth is boxed within . If the fifth you should pursue, it can never fly from you.

Yay! I was tired drawing and erasing lines, but didn't want to give up. By the time I did the first three, I could see a pattern.

Ouch, those are hard. I have a feeling I need to brush up on my maths and need to check out the Khan Academy.
