Using the modular ring Z4, it is shown that the row structures of xn − yn, x, y odd, n = 2m, are incompatible with the row structures of zn. Even though some structures are close, the right-end-digits (REDs) are quite distinct. The analysis shows how the effort to find counter-examples for such theorems may be drastically reduced.
