re: Cartesian - adj & n | Comment 7 of 8 |
(In reply to Cartesian - adj & n by Ady TZIDON)

My error was in failing to include the carry in the comparison of possible values (e.g., both 14 (7+7) and 4 (2+2) result in the digit 4 being represented, with the former having a carry:
C+C+1=I+(1*10) <> S+S+1=I+(0*10)

Correction made to my earlier post. And, though CARTESIAN is a proper noun/adjective, it is a valid English word, and rightfully considered for a possible solution. FYI, TESTACEAN, which also may be a proper noun, is also a common noun/adjective.
