    No, "zc" will become "zd". Similarly, 93 + 1 = 94, not 104.

      and something like "zaz" will become " aba" right?

        Nooo!!! The standard of arithmetic is going downhill nowadays! :-P

        z a z + 1 ------ z b a carry 1
        If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
