This mathematical statement is obviously false. Move one digit to make it true.

$$62-63=1$$

    $\begingroup$ It's not bad. It's not the best puzzle you could have posted either, but it's fun. Have a +1 from me. $\endgroup$ – Marius Feb 23 '17 at 8:49

Exponentiation will help!

Move the 6 so that,

$2^6 - 63 = 1$

I can make it true by moving a single line:

$62 = 63 - 1$
