Live to Learnsaid...excellent

April 25, 2017Heathersaid...For the 1st Matchstick brain teaser, I believe you can change the first 5 into a 6 and then change the second 5 into a 9 to create 6 + 3 = 9.

July 13, 2019Unknownsaid...The second puzzle has alternative solutions 3 + 5 = 8 or 5 + 3 = 8 by just moving a single match to turn one of the 3’s into a 5.

But 2 matches must be moved, so create a dummy move. First move any other match elsewhere to turn one of the 3’s into a 9.

Second turn this 9 into a 5 by moving the match to location where the first match came from.
