Pre wired segmented LEDs

I have a pre wired display, 4 segments of 2 for a total of eight digit's. It was wired for a cash register i have ran through it and it is wired as segment sets 1 and 3 together and 2 and 4 together my main consern is this may be good for displaying a single sum but can i use the display "as is" and split it to show 2 figures. as it sit i would only have to wire the first four dp's as they are not connected.

your just going to flip through them really fast to get the desired effect

well yea ! that's the thought im looking things over now and i could do the work i have a few chips on hand but i'd like to drive the display with best solution. it will indeed get it's data via arduino
