This seems backwards--shouldn't it be {wej boqHa' loS; chen wa'.}?

Three disassociates from four leaving one. Makes sense.

Remember that the number after boqHa' is the one disassociating from the original total (which is the thing being disassociated from and appears before boqHa').

3-4=1? No. I don't think that works.

Three dissasociates from four leaves one. Perfectly sensible order.

Yes. That is a way to translate the original sentence presented. It doesn't look like we had that as an accepted translation, so I will go add it in.
