could not get Simplified form

Latest problem that I have faced is the following. I have done some 
symbolic computation and use "ReplaceAll" command to assign each 
variable (Except "DS") to a certain numerical value. The result should 
be a single value with DS but I got the following result. You can notice 
that answer could not be in simplified form. I have already used 
Simplify and FullSimplify but that doesn't work as well.

DS (194.424 +0.00920267 0.211002.1.44488+9.86337=D710-21 

In the brackets some time numbers are separated by dot and some time 
not.  Also, what does it mean (two dots).    0.211002.1.44488?

Please solve this puzzle
