The answer to the first-grader problem

The unknown numbers are, of course, 6, 5 and 3. What’s the difference between them? Well, you can’t find the difference between three numbers. You can find the difference between the unknown numbers on the right side, though. So you do just that and get 2. That’s another unknown number we found out. Now just find the difference between 6 and 2. The final answer is 4. Makes sense? What, it doesn’t? I agree. Figures.
