The numbers 1 to 9 are placed in the small squares in such a way that no number is repeated and the sum of the three digits column-wise, row-wise and diagonally is equal to 15. With the easier puzzles, the numbers only go horizontally left to right or vertically downwards. So again you imagine the square would become a cylinder, this time with vertical axis. Next, we can work out A, as we have the two other numbers in that column. That's because the column that C lies in already contains 3 and 8. All the puzzles come with an answer sheet. There's already a 3 in the same column as B, so B has to be 8.

So that means all the rows, columns, and diagonals need to add up to 15. The Magic 4x4 Square The magic number is 1+2+. The example is self-complemetary, because the new square is symmetric to the old one. The last pattern, marked , is also restricted: the third number must equal twice the first minus the second, and so it too might need to be adjusted. This is a grid, most commonly 3x3 or 4x4, filled with numbers.

No pair is repeated, but the grid contains every single combination. When this would carry a number out of the Magic Square, write that number in the cell at the opposite end of the column or row, as shown by the numbers in the margin of Figure 6. Create another function to do this! Memory stunts, unusual scientific demonstrations, playing chess blindfolded and rapid mental mathematics are some examples. For instance, the cell above and to the right of 3 being occupied, 4 is written under 3. Once the grid has been filled, your program should output the magic square by calling another function that accepts the 2-dimensional array and the size of the array.

Instead, the knight moves in an L-shape as shown in the diagram. You can also achieve 15, if you add the middle number 5 three times. Again, because the 3 is on the edge, the 4 goes on the opposite side. For example, a magic square of order 3 contains all the numbers from 1 to 9, and a square of order 4 contains the numbers 1 to 16. If you only marked one box, your square is just that one box. Label them Highlights A, B, C, and D in a counter-clockwise manner.

See if you can fill out a 3 x 3 magic square with the products of each row, column and diagonal all come out to the same number! The complete magic square is in picture below. Similarly, other numbers may be made which would be divisible by 7, 11 and 13. You can also subtract, multiply or divide. Therefore you have to place number 5 in the middle of the magic 3x3 square. These magic squares and their values have been used in the symbolism of numbers in some of the advanced Degrees of Freemasonry.

It is a good activity to use for practicing adding, and also to develop perseverance. Successful stunts of this kind suggest the performer has an enhanced talent. The summands 1 to 16 are distributed regularly in the reductions: Summand: Number: 01 19 02 20 03 21 04 22 05 22 06 23 07 23 08 22 09 22 10 23 11 23 12 22 13 22 14 21 15 20 16 19 Unlike the 3x3 square there is not just one conclusion for the distribution of the numbers 1 to 16 in a 4x4 square. The 3x3 magic squares on the attached puzzle worksheets are the least complex form of magic squares you can solve. Write your answer in a 3 by 3 square.

The correctly filled grid will look like this: Notice that each result in this grid is simply the number from your original business card added to 13, with the exception of the four numbers in red. This subject should not be dismissed as a purely imaginative study. All you have to do is add 5 to each of the 16 numbers in your new grid and it will work. Since that time there have been many laborers upon this work. In a Magic Square, every row, column and diagonal all add up to make the same total. The two sets of progressions are complementary. Then split the square up into 4 by 4 subsquares, and mark the numbers that lie on the main diagonals of each subsquare.

They are more complicated however. You find the complementary square, if you replace each number n by 17-n. One of the most successful of all students of the subject unquestionably was Brother Benjamin Franklin. So, in a 6x6 square, you would only mark Box 1 which would have the number 8 in it , but in a 10x10 square, you would mark Boxes 1 and 2 which would have the numbers 17 and 24 in them, respectively. So there is a field top right for number 2. By the way, if there are any other types of magic squares you'd like to see that I didn't mention, please feel free to let me know so I can get some of those up too. Once again: A square is magic, if the numbers have the same sum in the rows, the columns and the diagonals.

But in most cases the performer is using a system. Label them A top left , C top right , D bottom left and B bottom right. So start by picking the order of the square, making sure that it's of the form 4k, and number the cells 1 to 4k 2 starting at the top left and working along the rows. This function to output the array should employ nested loops. This is a 4 by 4 magic square. White, as well as in Mathematical Recreations by Professor W. This is always where you begin when your magic square has odd-numbered sides, regardless of how large or small that number is.

Although the rows and columns all add up to 260, the main diagonals do not, so strictly speaking it is a semi-magic square. I even fill in some of the boxes already. To figure out how large each square should be, simply divide the number of boxes in each row or column by half. From the target number that your guests named, subtract the number 34. Play around with it and see what you can come up with! Number Fill in Puzzles Number Search Puzzles are a great way to get children looking for numbers and developing number recognition skills.
