    The question asks to “move” one matchstick. ‘Move’ doesn’t necessarily mean that it should be moved to anywhere within the given equation / statement. Hence:

    Remove the middle stick of the ‘8’ to make it ‘0’, making the statement 6 – 6 = 0, which is true. Otherwise – if the stick must be placed within the statement – move the lower left stick of ‘8’ (to make it ‘9’) and place it over the ‘=’ symbol, making it an inequality, which is also true.
