Assuming you are allowed to move 3 matches,
5 + 3 = 8

Possible another solution is 15+1=16.
Another solution is 10/2=5.

Since they didn't say the maximum count for altering matchsticks, we could alter 6 matchsticks and arrange it accordingly by using all sticks.
We could get 15+1=16.
Similarly alter 5 matchsticks to get 10/2=5.
