There are four frogs in a lake, and then three frogs jump away. How many are left?

In this problem, we begin with four frogs in a lake. Three of the frogs jump away. How many frogs are left? We started with four frogs, but three of them jumped away. So to find out how many frogs are left, we need to take away three frogs from our four frogs. Four take away three leaves us with one frog. If we take three from four, we get one. If there are four frogs in a lake and three frogs jump away, there will be one frog left.
