6 Year Old Kid Generates Christmas Magic Square in 5 minutes

Written by Pavan Kumar on December 25, 2008


Today, I visited a friend’s birthday party and a Magic Square of his date of birth captured my interest. He told it is a gift of a relative’s child and introduced the child to me. The young boy, Rohit is 6 year old and the Magic Square was his creation. He told, it can be generated in few minutes and prepared for my date of birth in 5 minutes. I asked him to generate for this Christmas and it was ready almost instantly. Here is what the kid wrote.

Christmas Magic Square

The left one was what he wrote for the date 25/12/2008 (First row – Christmas day in Indian format) and the right one (US Format – 12/25/2008) was done by me after learning the procedure from him. The Magic Constant (sum of all elements of any row / column / diagonal) is 65 in this case. Check out yourself and you will be amazed. And I am sorry guys, I  did not take my cell to the party and don’t have any of his photos, will try to collect it soon.

What is a Magic Square?

Magic Square is a Sqare box of numbers where the sum of all elements of each row / column / diagonal is same in all cases. Take example in the above one:

First magic square 1st row: 25+12+20+08=65

2nd row: 09+19+27+10=65

And that sum constant of all rows / columns / diagonals is called Magic Constant. In this case, it is 65.

So, if you want to learn how to write such a magic square(I bet you can, its very simple and easy), keep subscribed. I will soon blog about it for you readers. For the time being, bookmark this page :-) .
