Oh, my! It looks like someone has been writing nonsense on the blackboard again. It turns out, though, that under certain conditions, these strange equations are actually correct.
Eight minus six equals two. Eight plus six also equals two.
Assuming the above to be true, what does seven plus six equal?
As a side note, you probably do math like this on at least a daily basis.
You are correct!

This puzzle is using time as a framework for the calculations. If you take six hours away from eight a.m., the time becomes two a.m. Move forward six hours from eight a.m. and the time becomes two p.m. Therefore, if you add six hours to seven a.m., you should arrive at the answer, 1 p.m.
You can, of course, reverse a.m. and p.m. and still find the solution.

This puzzle is using time as a framework for the calculations. If you take six hours away from 8 am, the time becomes 2 am. Move ahead six hours from 8 am and the time becomes 2pm. Therefore, if you add six hours to 7am, you should arrive at the answer, 1 pm.
You can, of course, start at 8pm and still find the solution.
