DAY 270:

The Main Challenge

Here’s a crafty Mathelona-style challenge where your task is to make all three lines work out arithmetically by placing digits from 0 to 5 into the 12 gaps, with each digit being inserted exactly twice:

◯  +  ◯   =    0    =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    8    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  –  ◯   =    2    =   ◯  ÷  ◯

Can you arrive at 270 by inserting 3, 5, 6, 9 and 10 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (◯×◯×◯)÷(◯) = 270
  •  (◯+◯+◯)×(◯+◯) = 270
  •  (◯×◯–◯÷◯)×◯ = 270
