“Mathematics reveals its secrets only to those who approach it with pure love, for its own beauty” – Archimedes

Simple problems like this one can help improve your analytical skills over time. The human intelligence which is by far the most superior of all the creatures we know, needs to be strained by mental exercises from time to time, to stay that way. Who knows? It’s only a matter of time till we went to mars and what if we find a being with superior intellect than humans there? So keep those tiny gears in your brains whirring.

This sort of puzzle requires a bit of imagination, the ability to think-out-of-the-box. Conventional methods of solving an arithmetic problem are just not everything numbers have to offer. In this case, all you need to do is to move one numeral to get the equation right. Keep in mind that moving a numeral means that it can be placed any position in the equation.

101 – 102 = 1

Well, the answer is pretty simple,

Move the last digit of 102 slightly higher than the first two digits of the same number.

Like this,

101 – 102 = 1

Two being the exponent of ten, gives you the value 100.
