    The numbers 7 and 11 are both odd.
    Without adding the numbers together or subtracting them,
    how can you make them both even?

    Remove the 's' from seven and the 'el' from eleven.

    S • even
    El • even

    I looked at the other puzzle and discovered two clues that can be found in "Done With Ease", but I could only find them after (not before) solving the puzzle.

    Ease begins and ends with the letter 'e', and if you say the word outloud it sounds like E's...
    ( Done With E's )
