I've been turning my head to mush staring at this puzzle. There must be some advanced technique that I'm missing.

000|400|190
008|500|060
004|200|000


My First time posting, so I'm not really sure how to use the "Code" to make the grids look nice:(

I'm able to place the 2 and 5 in the top-middle region, but after that, I'm pretty much stuck.
