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:

        |     -1     |   |     +1     |   |     -3     |
        +------------+   +------------+   +------------+
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.

question | Comment 2 of 9 |
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.
