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.

That's why I said that I'd like to see their scratch paper. Kids have different talents at organizing their scratch paper work (and double checking thereof). Its very related to algorithm building, and that old fashioned view of math that insists that the correct answer shows up at the end.

Cheers
