If 6 - 9 is sulfur and 5 - 4 gives you iron, what two elements are obtained from 9 - 1?
six(6, in words) - ix (9 as a roman numeral) = s= chemical symbol for sulpher
five(5, in words) - iv(5, in roman numeral) = fe = chemical symbol for iron.
nine (9, in words) - i(1, in roman numeral) = nin, where n = chemical symbol for nitrogen and ne= chemical symbol for neon.
Thus we obtain Nitrogen and Neon upon subtraction of i from 9.
