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.
