Every word makes a common phrase when preceded by TOP or LEFT. Complete the
math calculations and match them with top and left as follows:

3798 / 18 = QUARK           211     TOP
74365 - 74364 = NOTCH       1       TOP
5561 x 2 = FEET             11122   LEFT
837 + 294 = BANANA          1131    TOP
666 + 745 = OVER            1411    LEFT
3 x 1037 = BEHIND           3111    LEFT
45 - 23 = DOG               22      TOP
6794 - 5383 = VENTRICLE     1411    LEFT
103 x 4 = HAT               412     TOP
88896 / 8 = HANDED          11112   LEFT
744 / 31 = OF THE LINE      24      TOP
548 - 237 = BILLING         311     TOP
71 x 3 = HEAVY              213     TOP
12 + 121 = OUT IN THE COLD  133     LEFT
1708 / 14 = SPIN            122     TOP
13063 - 942 = BRAIN         12121   LEFT
101 + 10 = DOLLAR           111     TOP
10000 - 9983 = IT ALL OFF   17      TOP
12 + 199 = BRASS            211     TOP
112 + 111 = WING            223     LEFT
11 x 101 = FIELD            1111    LEFT

These numbers map out the top indicators and left indicators of a
paint-by-numbers, as shown:

1   3 2 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 1
1 1 1 2 2 4 1 3 2 1 7 1

1411 X X X X X X X X X X X X
3111 X X X X X X X X X X X X
1411 X X X X X X X X X X X X
11112 X X X X X X X X X X X X
133 X X X X X X X X X X X X
12121 X X X X X X X X X X X X
223 X X X X X X X X X X X X
1111 X X X X X X X X X X X X

The solution to this PBN is:

x.x..x.xx.xx
x...xxxx.x.x
..xxx.x.x.x.
.x.xxxx.x.x.
x.x..x.x..xx
..x.xxx.xxx.
x.xx.x.xx.x.
...xx.xx.xxx
..x.x..x..x.

When divided into 2x3 sections and read in Braille as if the filled in
spots are bumps ("strange protrusions," "out of sight," "felt her way
through the dark") you get
