Some of these problems are not at all clear. I spent a long time with this one without an answer becuase it was not mentioned in the instructinos that you can add or remove mathematical opperators.

Lol, i was thinking really hard about this and it hit me like a load of bricks. 101 - 102 = 1
Change to 102 - 102 = 0 wouldnt that work. I think i over thought that.
