The Main Challenge

Here’s another Mathelona challenge based on my popular number puzzles.

Can you make all four lines work out arithmetically by filling the 16 gaps with digits from 0 to 9?  Remember, each digit can only be inserted a maximum of TWICE:

◯  +  ◯   =    7    =   ◯  +  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    4    =   ◯  –  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    6    =   ◯  ×  ◯
◯  +  ◯   =    3    =   ◯  ÷  ◯
