 Value of Problem - re Ay and Dej Mar. | Comment 6 of 7 |
How can one be so silly as to post a problem wherein there is a spelling mistake, albeit, a glaring mistake?

Yes, it is clear that the sequences as such are not the issue behind this problem, but why that third is NOT producing that required value "14"!!

Ady, Dej Mar has offered a very plausible reason for Charlie this.  That said, the intended solution might be something else equal valid.

Ady, apologies re name in subject, it slipped passed before I could halt the post.
