Menacing Matchsticks VTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
You will need thirteen matchsticks for this teaser. Using all of the matchsticks, make the number 631, as the number would appear digitally.
Now, as the fifth Menacing Matchsticks teaser, try to move only two matchsticks to make exactly 5!
Bend or break the matchsticks.
Stack the matchsticks.
Remove the matchsticks.
HintA different viewing angle will also assist you.
Also, look carefully at punctuation.
AnswerStep 1: Turn the 6 into a 0.
Step 2: Turn the 3 into a 2.
View the matchsticks upside-down. You should get 120, or 5! (5 factorial).
