Xtricate by Quinapalus

Each clue takes the form of a function of a single variable x. The number to be entered is that obtained when the answer to some other clue is substituted for x in the expression. Each answer is used exactly once in this way, and it is possible, by following a chain of clues, to reach any answer from any other answer.

No answer begins with a zero.
