Здравствуйте!

I've tried to find the difference between едят, есть and ем. I know all of them come from the verb "to eat", but I'm not sure when to use them. Feel free to give me some examples of them, спасибо!

They are part of the conjugation of the verb есть:

Есть (to eat) :

Я ем - I eat

Ты ешь - You (singular) eat

Он ест - He eats

Мы едим - We eat

Вы едите - You (plural) eat

Они едят - They eat

All russian verb conjugate like this (though есть is a highly irregular verb)

есть means "is" or "to eat" (the infinitive form)

едят = they eat (3rd person plural)

ем = I eat (1st person singular)
