### Magic square computation

How can I make a program that by given n^2 integers to answer how can you make or if there doesn't exist a magic square from these integers?

I believe you can use an additive process - you construct the square out of several special tilings.

Ahhh ... Wikipedia has an answer here (half way down)

This is one for you:-

16    2     3   13
5    11   10     8
9      7     6   12
4     14   15    1

And interesting hard task:
Prove that there dosen't exist magic square of non-serial fibbonachi numbers.
