If you take away nine from six, then take away ten from nine, and lastly, take away fifty from forty, then you get six. How is this possible?

Math wouldn't be fun if there weren't any wrong answers, then it'd just be philosophy. @MarcLeclair No worries, life is good :)

I got it. 40-50 = -10 + 10 = 0 9-9 = 0 + 6
