Answers to Questions

How to create a magic square of odd order?

Formula: Set number 1 on the left of the median line, the other numbers are written following the rule: if the cell is empty, in the cell in the bottom right of the previous one, else directly to the left of the occupied cell. When the cell does not exist (after last column or last row), go to the other side of the square/matrix.

What are the minimal possible sums (magic values)?

The constant values $ M $ of the sums of the magic squares have a minimum value (for non-zero integer positive values).

$$ M = n (n ^ 2 + 1) / 2 $$

For a size 3x3, the minimum constant is 15, for 4x4 it is 34, for 5x5 it is 65, 6x6 it is 111, then 175, 260, ...

Any lower sum will force the use of either negative numbers or fractions (not whole numbers) to solve the magic square.
