DAY 264:

The Main Challenge

Your task is to make the four lines below work out arithmetically.

Simply place the digits 0 to 9 into the 16 gaps, but each digit must only be inserted a maximum of twice in the whole challenge.

◯  +  ◯   =    12    =   ◯  +  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     1     =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     5     =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     2     =   ◯  ÷  ◯
