A 4 by 4 magic square 2007-11-21
sue pose la question :
This is for my 10 year old nephew. His math question is: he has a 4X 4 magic square. The top squares are from left to right: 359,356,353,366. He says that columns are supposed to equal 796. We can't figure it out and would really appreciate any help we could get.

Numbers around a circle 2004-03-28
Rebecca pose la question :
my maths question is use the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 place each number in a circle so each line adds up to 12. There are seven circles, six on the outside and one in the middle. Each number lines up with the middle number and the outside numbers line up with the one directly across from it as if a line was going through the middle number circle.

A student pose la question :
7th grader wanting to find solution to magic square:

place the integers from -5 to +10 in the magic square so that the total of each row, column, and diagonal is 10. The magic square is 4 squares x 4 squares.

Pythagoras & magic squares 2001-10-09
John pose la question :
My grandson became intrigued when he recently 'did' Pythagoras at elementary school. He was particularly interested in the 3-4-5 triangle, and the fact that his teacher told him there was also a 5-12-13 triangle, i.e. both right-angled triangles with whole numbers for all three sides. He noticed that the shortest sides in the two triangles were consecutive odd numbers, 3 & 5, and he asked me if other right angled triangles existed, perhaps 'built' on 7, 9, 11 and so on.

I didn't know where to start on this, but, after trying all sorts of ideas, we discovered that the centre number in a 3-order 'magic square' was 5, i.e. (1+9)/2, and that 4 was 'one less'. Since the centre number in a 5-order 'magic square' was 13 and that 12 was 'one less' he reckoned that he should test whether a 7-order square would also generate a right-angled triangle for him. He found that 7-24-25, arrived at by the above process, also worked! He tried a few more at random, and they all worked. He then asked me two questions I can't begin to answer ...

  1. Is there a right-angled triangle whose sides are whole numbers for every triangle whose shortest side is a whole odd number? and

  2. Is each triangle unique (or, as he put it, can you only have one whole-number-sided right-angled triangle for each triangle whose shortest side is an odd number)?

Magic triangles 2000-04-11
Sandy pose la question :
My tutoring student brought math homework today in the form of a "magic triangle". There are three spaces along each side for missing numbers. The sums of the numbers along each of the 3 sides should be the same. Use the numbers 4 through 9. Don't use any number more than once. The sum of the numbers on each side should be 20. What is the logic behind solving a problem of this kind?

Magic Square 1999-09-18
Nick Grundberg pose la question :
Using the this square, fill in the squares using the numbers 1 through 9 just once to make all the sums equal in all directions, across, down, and diagonally.

Then tell what the sum of the magic square equals.

Magic Squares 1999-02-11
Katie Powell pose la question :
My name is Katie Powell. I'm in the 7th grade, taking Algebra. I live in Houston, Texas. My problem is this:

"Use the numbers 1-9 to fill in the boxes so that you get the same sum when you add vertically, horizontally or diagonally."

The boxes are formed like a tic-tac-toe -- with 9 boxes -- 3 rows and 3 columns.

Can you help?
Jack LeSage lui répond.
