### 6 + 4 = 4 - solution

Hey,

In order to solve this one you have to make an eight out of the six in this sum by using the vertical matchstick in the '+'-character.
This way you'll get 8 - 4 = 4.

Hope this is of any use.
Have fun,

Make the 6 to a 0 by moving the second horizontal toothpick vertical.
