I think we might be able to make an exception here since s/he actually did the work him/herself first and than asked for verification, rather than not doing the work just asking us for an answer outright. I'm not really sure but I have to say it is quite refreshing to see someone who's actually willing to put forth some effort

oo need to do exception, our rule always was that we offer people to check or explain if they have done their research before coming here.

So I read the message, and I can say for sure that 8 and 18 are wrong.
