Dezelfde en Hetzelfde?

Very quick question. I am currently doing the Demonstrative Pronouns skill, and I just completed the third lesson, which has dezelfde and hetzelfde in it.

I saw both dezelfde and hetzelfde being used as the same. I can't quite distinguish a difference between the two. Can anyone please explain this to me? I would really appreciate it!

Dank je wel!

Looks like it's dezelfde for de- words and hetzelfde for het- words: Link.

I should have seen that... It's too late to be doing this. o

Prime example of "too late-ness". ;)

Exactly. Another example is that I can hardly type correctly. Like my grammar is just awful... It seems that learning some Dutch has gotten me tired enough to sleep (which is odd because it's quite entertaining). Ugh... I'm going to wake up so late and that's going to take away from precious learning time.
