You will need thirty-three matchsticks for this puzzle.

Arrange all the matchsticks into the number 700000, as the number would appear digitally.

Moving only two matchsticks, can you make a value well over 1,000,000,000?

You cannot:
Break the matchsticks.
Stack the matchsticks.
Remove the matchsticks.
Make a factorial.
Make the symbol for infinity (an 8 rotated 90 degrees).
