## 1Move only one matchstick

The diagram shows that with the help of matchsticks, a mathematical calculation is being done; the calculation is pretty simple as it says 9-3 = 6. However, now you have to make another correct mathematical equation but one thing that you have to keep in mind is that you can move only one matchstick.

### Answer:

We hope that you would have solved it comfortably as it is quite easy. However if still you haven’t solved it than let us tell you that you need to convert 9 into 3 and change the sign of subtraction to addition, the new equation will be 3+3 = 6.

Another solution is to move one matchstick from the number 6 in such a manner that it looks like 5 and add it to number 9 so that it looks like number 8. The new mathematical equation will be 8-3 = 5.
