    Easy...To make the "nine" figure...design the 8s so they appear like the roman numeral for nine. The roman numeral for 1 is like a capital I with the lines across the top. The roman numeral for 10 is an X. Arrange one 8 as your "post", two 8s as the line across the top and the bottom, and then make an X from two of the remaining. Your 5 8s should look like IX.

    Or 8 88/88ths as the others have suggested.
