    Tricky Equality

    This equation is, of course, true: <font color=blue><big><big>-127 = -127</big></big></font color=blue>. On the right side of the equal sign, there are 4 items, they are: (-), (1), (2) & (7). Your challenge is to re-arrange only those 4 items and keep the equation true. Note: You cannot change anything on the left side of the equal sign.
