Even though t comes before e in the alphabet, most prefixes are ignored in alphabetization, and ethyl comes before ethylpentane. If you compare 2 2 4 to 2 4 4, the first 2 is equal to the first 2 of the second scheme, but the first naming scheme's second digit, 2, is lower than the second digit of the second naming scheme, 4.
