## Menacing Matchsticks IXTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.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). Use exponents. ## What Next?
