Magic square is part of Recreational Mathematics. Great people like Srinivasa Ramanujan, Leonard Euler, Benjamin Franklin etc have worked on this magic square.
Magic square is broadly divided into two types - Odd order magic squares and Even order magic squares.
The examples of the odd order magic squares are 3x3, 5x5, 7x7 etc.
There is a relatively easy and popular method to construct an odd order magic square of any dimension and it is called the De La Loubere's method.
The Even order magic squares are again divided into two types - Singly Even and Doubly Even.
Singly Even are those that are divisible by two but not divisible by 4. Examples of this are 6x6, 10x10, 14x14 etc. Here the numbers 6, 10, 14 etc are divisible by 2 but not divisible by 4.
Doubly even order magic squares are those that are divisible by both 2 and 4. Examples of the doubly even order magic squares are 4x4, 8x8, 12x12 etc. Here the numbers 4, 8, 12 etc are divisible by 2 as well as by 4.
The Magic square puzzle is based upon the 8x8 magic square. These 8x8 magic squares are very special in the sense that they give a magic sum of 260 for the order 8.
Apart from that they contain four 4x4 sub squares, which give a magic sum of 130. Apart from that there are shaded regions of 2x2 in each 4x4 magic sub square, which gives a sum of 130.
The center 2x2 of each 4x4 magic square also gives a total of 130.
Using these properties of the 8x8 magic square we have to solve the magic square puzzles.
Solving this magic square puzzles improves the Arithmetic ability, mental skills and removes math phobia.
Students will get interest in the Mathematics and start loving the subject.
Welcome you on this enchanting journey.
