basically, you can only move one matchsticks to make the equation, but you can not discard it or take the top half or the bottom half of a 1 to make a full 1

i think the poster made a mistake, there should be two sticks on the 1 at the end next to the 4 instead of one stick.

Also, I think the solution is to pick top horizontal stick of 5 and place it at left-bottom vertically. It will become 6+8 = 14
