No.  That's not correct.

READ the statement carefully, and answer your own question.

Instead of me just continually explaining how it's possible, it's time for
you to apply that "superior" female intellect and figure it out for
yourself.

ALL this requires is a little bit of addition and subtraction.  It doesn't
require you to resolve a million third order partial differential equations.
It doesn't require calculus.  It doesn't even require algebra if you do it
right.
