They're teaching you wrong

Overheard at a restaurant tonight:

Mother: So, what did you learn in school today?

Son: (Excited) We learned to do one takeaway one!

Mother: Really? What is one takeaway one?

Son: (with obvious pride) Zero!

Mother: Are you sure?

Son: (slightly flustered) Uh, yeah ... Zero ...?

Mother: One takeaway one is ten. They're teaching you wrong, aren't they?
