How many more sticks does Matthew need to change this hexagon into an octagon?

We know that Matthew has made a hexagon using his sticks. And the question is asking us how many more sticks will he need to make an octagon. This question is asking us to think about how many sides a hexagon has and how many sides an octagon has. Hexagons, including Matthew’s hexagon, have six sides. An octagon has eight sides. What’s the difference between eight and six? The answer is two. Eight subtract six is two. Matthew will need two more sticks to change his hexagon into an octagon.
