What is wrong in Ma & Pa Kettle Math?

This fun video can easily convince you that 25 / 5 = 14.



Still doubting? Good!
We are being cheated right under our eyes. Ma & Pa use correct multiplication and division rules but freely mix and match digits in singles and tens places.

The last trick is the easiest to catch.
14
14
14
14
14
--
25

He adds all five 4th obtaining 20 correctly.
Then adds all five 1th, but places this 5 into the singles digit instead of the tens one.

This is what he should have got:
20
5
---
70

Mom does the same multiplying (I use 0s to kep digits in place):
14
05
--
20
05
--
25

when 5 should go into tens producing 70.

And in the very first argument Pa again puts 1 and 4 next to each other producing 14 instead of adding them to get 5.

Watch it a few time stopping after each math machination and you will see that 25 / 5 is still 5 and Ma and Pa are amazing actors.
