    move one of the sticks in 6 (making it 5) 
    And make 4 on the other side 9.
    The consequent equation is 5+4=9

    Move vertical stick from plus sign to empty place of six. The equation will become 8-4=4. Which is True.

    Move blue stick from 6 to the top of the 4.  That makes the equation 5+4=9.

    Move the green stick from the middle of the 6 and put it on the right-top side of the 6.  That makes the equation 0+4=4.

    Take the yellow stick from the plus sign, and put it on the empty space on the 6.  That makes it 8-4=4.
