You are given 9 square pieces (A - I), each one having in each side a number from 1 to 4, positive or negative, as shown:

Your task is to juxtapose them forming a 3x3 grid so that "touching numbers" of each pair of touching pieces (horizontally or vertically) adds to zero.

Note: You are free to rotate the pieces.

When you say rotate the pieces do you mean rotating the pieces on its "axis" or do you mean rotating the pieces around the grid? The reason I asked was because in that center piece the -4 can't pair up with anything to equal zero in the position the pieces are in now.
