A five digit number 82093
by 29 matches looks like this:
_ _ _ _ _
|_| _| | | |_| _|
|_| |_ |_| _| _|
You are requested to make this number as big as possible by moving only two matches.
What is the maximum value and how is it achieved?
What would be your answer if 3 matches were allowed to be relocated?
Be creative - no restrictions
re your answers.
(In reply to re(2): restrictions - no spoiler
Two matches - I just do not see a bigger number
Three matches - apply your creativity (even without breaking or snapping matches) to exceed your result significantly or wait for about a week to compare with my solution.
