by rotating one matchstick of first zero (0) it becomes nine. removing one stick from eight (8) and placing in 5 would make the former and the latter both nine. hence 9009

511108 by moving upper and lower stick at number 0 (zero), to make number 1 (one).
but if you flipped your phone or monitor upside down, you can get 811105 which is higher than 511108.

By moving the top and the bottom sticks of zero [0] to make 8 from the 5 at the beginning it becomes a 7 digit number of 8111118 which is the highest of all the solutions so far

that means 4 sticks but question is about two sticks

I think I have moved only two stick one the horizontal one from the top of zero and other again horizontal one from the bottom of what was once zero and now u. These two match sticks have been placed to make 8 out of five and number of digits to 7 and the number 8111118.
