Is it just me...?
No.16:
CARE =TRACE - T (i.e 20 - T) = 18.
Therefore T = 2.
CART = TRACE - E (i.e.20 - E) = 16
Therefore E = 4.
RAT = CART - C
Therefore for RAT also to be 16, C must = 0.
But if EAR = 13 and E = 4, AR = (13 - 4) =9
And we know that T = 2, so RAT = 9 + 2 =11.
Or have missed something?
