54. MAGICSQUARES-BIRTHDAY
 
Home Menu Previous Next

While he was in school, young Ramanujan was fond of magic-squares. He created a specific 4 x 4 magic-square and called it his birthday magic-square as the numbers in the top row make up his date of birth, 22 12 1887.

This magic-square with its top row only filled is given below. You may like to fill the remaining 12 boxes with twelve other distinct numbers. (No number repeated.)

In a magic-square, the vertical (column), horizontal (row) and diagonal totals (10 in all for a 4 x 4) will be the same.

Try & fill this magic square in your own way.
