DOUBLE-EVEN MAGIC SQUARES
Steps to solving double-even magic squares Fill in numbers 1 through n 2, right to left, beginning at the bottom corner. When you reach the end of the first row, continue numbering beginning on the right side of the next row
Steps to solving double-even magic squares Divide your grid into 16 mxm grids. To find m: n 2 /16 The 4 mxm corner squares the 4 mxm inner squares will not change. We will work on the left over rectangles.
Steps to solving double-even magic squares Now we’re going to reflect the the rectangles to the opposite side. We have now completed the square. We can check it by computing the sum of the rows, columns, and diagonals.
Example of a 12 X 12 Magic Square
ODD MAGIC SQUARES Using de la Loubere method
Steps to solving odd magic squares Begin by placing 1 in the middle square of the first row We will place the following numbers in the squares diagonally above and to the right. If there isn’t a column available for a number to be placed, move it to the last square of the corresponding column. Continue numbering through the diagonal. If there isn’t a row available for a number to be placed, move it to the first square of the corresponding row. If there is a number blocking the next corresponding square, place the number directly below the last placed number and continue numbering Special Rule!! When you reach the top, right corner square, place the next number in the square directly below it
