A square divided into smaller squares each containing a number, such that the figures in each vertical, horizontal, and diagonal row add up to the same value.
‘One of the most ancient of mathematical curiosities is the so-called magic square.’
‘His version of magic square - a variant now termed the Franklin magic square - was inspired by the work of Stifel and Frénicle, both of whose magic squares were of a more traditional variety.’
‘In 1972, Richard Schroeppel proved that, if a perfect magic square of order 5 exists, its center number must be 63.’
‘It contains the first magic square to be seen in Europe, cleverly including the date 1514 as two entries in the middle of the bottom row.’
‘Benjamin can also handle magic squares, natural logarithms, cube roots, and much more.’
