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! :-)
