DAY 305:

The Main Challenge

Another typical Mathelona challenge taken from our pocket book of number puzzles.

Your task is to make all three lines work out arithmetically by filling the 12 gaps with the following 12 numbers.  Can you successfully complete this?

1      1      2      2      2      3      4      4      5      6      7      8

◯  +  ◯   =     5     =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    10    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     2     =   ◯  ÷  ◯
