(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

Here’s more about the number 1346:

  • 1346 is a composite number.
  • Prime factorization: 1346 = 2 × 673
  • 1346 has no exponents greater than 1 in its prime factorization, so √1346 cannot be simplified.
  • The exponents in the prime factorization are 1, and 1. Adding one to each exponent and multiplying we get (1 + 1)(1 + 1) = 2 × 2 = 4. Therefore 1346 has exactly 4 factors.
  • The factors of 1346 are outlined with their factor pair partners in the graphic below.

1346 is the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triple:
770-1104-1346 which is 2 times 385-552-673

Facts about and Factors of 2019

Here’s a countdown you can use to ring in the New Year:

2019 is the sum of consecutive numbers three different ways:
1009 + 1010 = 2019
672 + 673 + 674 = 2019
334 + 335 + 336 + 337 + 338 + 339 = 2019

There is one way that 2019 is the sum of consecutive odd numbers:
671 + 673 + 675 = 2019

2019 is the difference of two squares two different ways:
338² – 335² = 2019
1010² – 1009² = 2019

2019 is the sum of three squares nine different ways:
43² + 13² + 1² = 2019
43² + 11² + 7² = 2019
41² + 17² + 7² = 2019
41² + 13² + 13² = 2019
37² + 25² + 5² = 2019
37² + 23² + 11² = 2019
37² + 19² + 17² = 2019
35² + 25² + 13² = 2019
31² + 23² + 23² = 2019

2019 is the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triple:
1155-1656-2019 so 1155² + 1656² = 2019²

2¹⁰ + 2⁹ + 2⁸ + 2⁷ + 2⁶ + 2⁵ + 2¹ + 2⁰ = 2019

2019 is a palindrome in a couple of bases:
It’s 5B5 in BASE 19 (B is 11 base 10) because 5(19²) + 11(19) + 5(1) = 2019,
and 3C3 in BASE 24 (C is 12 base 10) because 3(24²) + 12(24) + 3(1) = 2019

Every year has factors that often catch people by surprise. Today I would like to give you my predictions for the factors of 2019:
2019 will have four positive factors: 1, 3, 673, and 2019
However, 2019 will also have four negative factors: -1, -3, -673, and -2019

Which factors, positive or negative, will be your focus in the coming year?

Finally, I’ll share some mathematics-related 2019 and New Year tweets that I’ve seen on twitter. Some of these tweets have links that contain even more facts about the number 2019.

That tweet inspired me to make my own 3 × 3 Magic Square where every number is different but every row, column and diagonal totals the same number:
