My eldest son is learning about the different ways a subtraction problem can be written in mathematics;)
We all remember primary school. Sometimes the question might say 'take away'. Or sometimes it may say 'subtract' 20 from 18. But sometimes it may ask for the 'difference' between two numbers.


So I wrote down three math problems asking him to subtract two numbers using the these three phrases. Here were his answers:-

Q:- What do you get if you 'take away' 18 from 20?
A:- 2

Q: How many would remain if you 'subtract' 15 from 18?
A: 3

Q: What is the 'difference' between 12 and 14?
A: One has a two and one has a four,

Oh boy....:p

This Kid just cracks me up!!!!:D
