Further my post of Jan 19, 2013 9:05 PM (pasted below my signature for reference), perhaps I should say,

"ONGRATULATIONS!", instead?

AND epeat!

Because, if

- -- DEAN - NED = A, then

- -- DEAN - NED should not = D unless you really wish to foncuse those pre-algebra kids!

and

- -- ARIEAL - BLAIRE = B is also likely to foncuse.

But you're right, nonetheless (and I was wrong, or, perhaps wong).

Algebra NOT required.
