DAY 329:

The Main Challenge

. . . is a Mathelona number puzzle where you must solve all four lines arithmetically by filling the 16 gaps below with digits 0-9.

Each digit 0-9 can only be inserted a maximum of TWICE in the whole puzzle:

◯  +  ◯   =     5     =   ◯  +  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     3     =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    10    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =     1     =   ◯  ÷  ◯
