A Subtraction Problem

Jack used the number line to solve.


Write a letter to Jack telling him what he did right and how to fix his mistake.


Jack, difference is the result of a subtraction problem. The remainder left after subtraction of one value from another.


We have something we must lose; years or sanity


Quite rarely isolated numbers counted in the miles we’ve spent searching


But I will tell you there are no mistakes and fixing what is right

Too often tricks us into doing wrong –


Trust me. You’ll find out down the line.
