DAY 311:

The Main Challenge

Further details of my popular Mathelona number puzzle can be found by clicking this Mathelona link.

Can you make all four lines work out arithmetically by filling the 16 gaps below with digits 0-9? Each digit can only be inserted a maximum of TWICE:

◯  +  ◯   =    9    =   ◯  +  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    9    =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    9    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    7    =   ◯  ÷  ◯

Were you able to complete this without repeating the same sum when making 9?
