 Puzzle Strips (Posted on 2003-10-27)
The numbers and symbols below are placed onto five vertical strips of paper:
```           =   =   8   8   2
+   -   2   6   1
=   =   5   2   0
+   +   9   1   9
```
Rotate and rearrange the strips so that four valid equations appear across the rows.

For example, if you had the 2×1 strips:

```=  =  6  6  8
-  +  1  1  5
```
You could rearrange them as:
```5  +  1  =  6
8  =  9  -  1
```

Note: Consider the numbers as they appear on a digital watch; 0, 1, 2, 5 and 8 are the same when rotated 180°, while 6 and 9 rotate to each other.
