The discrepancy is from not checking my books first before I wrote the question.
R + S = T or as you said: RB + SH = TB

Must have been a mental lapse from deminta or something...
But I did get people to start thinking...
And when I am teaching I do put errors on the board to see if my students are awake and have studied. But it wasn't suppose to happen this time.
