Check out how people reacted to this brain teaser:

“Move the top and bottom matches on the 0 next to the 8. I will repeat it again. Move the top and bottom match on the 0 right next to the number 8 into a vertical line. So the two matches make a vertical line that resembles the number one. And with the 0 losing its bottom and top matches, it will make the zero look like the number 11. So 51181 is the answer but I'm sure there is another answer too!” posted an individual.

“999. Take the bottom left off the eight to make the five a nine and swing the bottom left of the zero up to make it a nine and you have the biggest number possible in three digits,” expressed a third.

A fourth shared, “Turn upside down, remove top and bottom match from zero- 81151.”
