Can you make the equation true by moving only one match?

The following is from "More Games for the Super-Intelligent" by James F. Fixx.
i i = v i
By moving one match, the answer becomes:
i = v t
The t is made by taking one of the matches on the left hand side and putting it on top of the match on the right hand side.
So, I have the question, and I have the answer, but James F. Fixx felt it was obvious without giving a written explanation.
I don't know what i=vt refers to. Could someone tell me?
Thanks so much!
