It can't be division. Look, DG gave me a block with 48 beauty and 32 smart from these blocks:

| Qualot | $1,000
| Cool: 0 | Beauty: 10 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 10 | Tough: 10 |
| Smooth: 20 |

| Razz | $1,500
| Cool: 10 | Beauty: 10 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 0 | Tough: 0 |
| Smooth: 20 |

| Ganlon | $2,500
| Cool: 0 | Beauty: 40 | Cute: 0 | Smart: 40 | Tough: 0 |
| Smooth: 80 |

My calculation (I had not seen the instruction to divide/multiply/whatever) was 60 beauty and 40 smart.

Multiply 60 by .8- 48!
Multiply 40 by .8- 32!

If I had divided, I would have gotten 75 beauty and 50 smart. There's no way division can possibly come into the equation. Multiplication gave me the same answer as DG. Division... is way off.

I can probably take some grading requests now. But don't all rush me at once. :/
