I'm ashamed to say how long it's taken me to get round to really going
through this piece of work in detail.

I wasn't quite sure what this solution actually meant. The solutions
suggested seem (as I understand them) to be different to the problem brought
up. Perhaps I didn't thoroughly understand what was meant by either?
Would your student be able to explain a little more about what the issue
was, and show their proposed solution?
