Description  Magicsquare
EditBy: A Magic Square is an arrangement of the numbers from 1 to n^2 (nsquared) in an nxn Matrix, with each number occurring exactly once, and such that the sum of the entries of any row, any column, or any main diagonal is the same. It is not hard to show that this sum must be n(n^2+1)/2.Sometimes the magic squares above are called `normal` squares, where cells are filled with numbers 1 to n for a Grid of size n. Another set of magic squares is where a cell may be filled with any number, with the sum of rows, columns and diagonals being a preselected number.This program computes `normal` as well as the `variable` types of magic squares. Following options are provided:* Grid Size can be 3 to 50. Note that larger grid sizes will take a long time to solve* Solve  Auto, computer will calculate the MagicSquare. For variable magic squares, the program uses a combination of random guesses and solution of equations in order to arrive at a solution quickly. Each variable magic square solution is likely to be different. For normal squares a combination of La Loubere and LUX methods are used* Solve  Manual, a blank grid is presented for user to enter numbers in the grid and solve the puzzle. Right click on a cell to a get dropdown menu for manipulating cell values* Print  Print the solution and the empty grid for attempting solution on paper. Maximum grid Size that can be printed is 30* Many more interesting options
