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 prealgebra 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.
