bad solution... ...very bad. | Comment 4 of 18 |

I like e.g.'s answer--it makes a lot more sense than the best thing I could come up with:

Rewrite the first 1 and 0 so that the o is above and slightly to the left of the 1 in order to make a '9'.

Take another 0 and the three remaining 1's, write the 0 on the bottom, stick a vertical 1 coming out of the 0 at the top left, attach a horizontal 1 to the previous 1 heading towards the right, then with the remaining 1 write over the left side of the 0 essentially erasing that portion of the 0. (I told you my answer sucked...)  This makes a 5.

Then stick the remaining 0 on the end and you have a 9, a 5, and a 0.
