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?
