Ok riddle people, get in here

Ok, here is a math riddle. Anyone feel like figuring it out? I saw this on another forum and after spending 30 mins figuring it out, I thought I would see who here could figure it out. lol.

This is a tough one so it will take some time...most people that try to solve it eventually give up. No cheating now with google...

62-63=1

The equation above does not make sense as the answer should be -1 and not 1. The riddle is to move ONE digit around to make the equation true. For example moving the 6 could be like this 2-63=16 or 2-636=1.

You cannot swap any numbers around nor can you move the 1 to the other side of the equation. You cannot move any of the signs or add in any signs or numbers.

To make it fun for everyone, if you know the answer, PM me the answer instead of posting so that everyone else can have a shot at it. Again this puzzle is simple and yet tough at the same time.

Did you? And yes, it took some thinking to figure out. Kept me busy for about 45 mins at work anyhow.

The only correct move is to move digits...you can't move the 62 or the 63, only the 6, 2, 6, or 3 individually.
