DAY 263:

The Main Challenge

One of our popular Mathelona challenges awaits you; can you complete this by making all four lines work out arithmetically?  Fill the 16 gaps with digits 0 to 9, but each digit can only be inserted a maximum of twice.

◯  +  ◯   =    8    =   ◯  +  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    8    =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    8    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    7    =   ◯  ÷  ◯
