This was sent to me on FB and I tried to answer it on the fly. I shared the problem and about 2 weeks later a friend asked, "Well is it one?" Thank you for your Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally process!

yep! Your first step of subtracting took you off the main course. Remember multiplication and dividion first. 1 x 0 = 0. 2/2 = 1.

Thank you jeannie. I show these to my students. It reinforces the thought process behind solving mathematical equation.
