Basics to 28
1. (9=4)c8 - @(4)b9 = d9 - d2 = (4@-9)b2 = (9)a2 => -9a8 and @ loop eliminations: -4b37|d7 ; UP=35
2. (2=49)ic8 - (9=2)b7 => -2gi7
3. (8=2)e3 - e8 = (2-4)i8 = i7 - f7 = (46)f31 - (6=8)c1 => -8e1 ; UP = 38
4. (4)i7 = i8 - c8 = (46*)c37 - (6=3)a9 - (3=85)ai5 => -5i7, -6*i7 ; UP = 39
5. (2=48)i87 - (8)h7 = h3 - (8=2)e3 => -2e8 ; UP = 81
