# (1346÷2)×3 = 2019 Magic or Square?

I was inspired to make a 3 × 3 Magic Square where every number is different but the numbers in each row, column and diagonal added together equal the same number, 54: I made it by taking a regular 3 × 3 Magic Square and adding 13 to each of its numbers.

What inspired me to do that? This magical tweet of a palindromic Magic Square for the Year 2019:

Yeah, I know my magic square isn’t quite as impressive. It might be more square than it is magic. It’s also less impressive than this number 2019 spelled out using fifty-one
4 × 4 Magic Squares.

Nevertheless, I made it, and I’m sharing it in this post I’ve numbered 1346, a special number this year because (1346÷2)×3 = 2019
