Deciphering a pattern

I’m trying to knit a child’s sweater and I have the back portion complete. For the front the directions state “Work same as back 4 rows less than back to neck division have been worked” Any ideas what this means? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

However many rows you knit on the back before you divided for the neck ; knit the same number of rows for the front the same way you did the back minus four

so if you knit 44 rows from caston of the back to the neck division; then knit 40 rows for the front.
