# DAY/DYDD/GIORNO/NAP 270: The Main Challenge

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

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

3   5   10   12   18   20   32   33   35   44   49   54   56   60
