Make This Addition Problem Correct

This math problem is currently wrong.

11 + 66 + 88 + 96 = 294

How can you make it actually equal 294?

Flip the numbers upside down:

11 + 99 + 88 + 96 = 294

Um…. Actually, for this to work it should be
11 + 66 + 88 + 69 = 294

Because if you flip 11 + 66 + 88 + 96
You get:
11+99+88+69
Which equals 267.

Write down 96, then flip it upside down. It’s still 96.

A nice solution is also swapping the last 6 and the last 9:
11+66+88+99=264
getting twin numbers before the equal sign.
