You are taking 4 away from the 13

remember to take away means to subtract

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13

 

Since You gave away 4 of your cookies you still have 9 left. 

Do You understand now?

Let be clear this question up a bit by adding my own characters.

 

Angela has 13 cookies, and Peter asks for 4 cookies, how many cookies does Angela have left?

 

Now this answer depends on what happens next.

 

Scenario #1: Angela is selfish and keeps all the cookies for herself. 

If Angela keeps all the cookies then Angela will still have 13 cookies and Peter will have 0 cookies :-(

 

 

Scenario #2: Anglea is kind and shares the 4 cookies with Peter.

If Anglea shares 4 cookies with Peter then Angela will have 9 cookies and Peter will have 4 cookies.

 

Hope that helps!
