.
It's a fixed phrase, Bittu-- you've lost me means I cannot understand (follow) your explanation. This and the first speaker's phrase, are you with me?, are derived from the image of leading and following.

Dear teachers
what would be the respond if Jane had been distracted by something and hadn't been following Mike? I mean when it was not the case of understanding.

I think, "No, you've lost me" means I don't want to follow you.
Am I right?

Dear Sir,

I don't understand the meaning of the first sentence 'Then you take away the first number - are you with me?'
Please explain that meaning.

I presume that the conversation is about the mathematical operation called 'subtraction'.
