Let us do magic square to the date of Birth of our Greatest Indian Mathematician Sri Srinivasa Ramanujan.

His date of Birth is 22nd Dec 1887. The following is a Date-Of-Birth Magic Square with a Magic Total 139.

**By following the given method we can do hundreds of, thousands of, millions of Date of Birth Magic Squares for any given date.**

The following is a table with variables, which we will use in the explanation

- Write the date in the top row first square, month in the second square and year in two parts in the third and fourth square.
- Add all the four numbers and write on the top of the square (139).
- Now we have to make a 4 x 4 magic square.
- Draw a empty 4 x 4 square and replace
**22 by A, 12 by B, 18 by C and 87 by D.** - Now we know
**A,B,C and D**. Rest of the values we have to find out. - Count all numbers in the total
**1+3+9=13.**Once again count**1+3=4.**(add all numbers and make it a single digit.**Write this in the H square** - Now add
**B+C ( 12 + 18 =30)**. Divide**30 into two parts. i.e 14 and 16.**Write**14 in W**square and**16 in the Z square** - By using the properties of Magic square, i.e all vertical, Horizontal and both Diagonal totals are equal, we are going to solve this Magic Square.
- In the Fourth vertical column, we know the values of
**D,H,Z.**we have to find Out the value of S. Hence**S = 139 – (D+H+Z) = 139 — ( 87+4+16) = 139 – 107 = 32.****This is the value of S. Write 32 in the S square** - Now in Diagonals, we know the value of
**A and Z .**Hence the value of**F + R = 139 – (22 + 16) = 139-38= 101. Divide it into two parts 50 and 51**and write it in the F and R squares.**F = 50 and R = 51.** - In another diagonal, we know the value of D and W . Hence the value of
**G+Q = 139 – (87 + 14) = 139-101= 38.**Divide it into two parts 17 and 21 and write it in the F and R squares.**G = 17 and Q = 21.** - In the second row, we know the value of
**E,G,H. H**ence value of**E=139-(E+G+H)= 139 –( 50+17+4)= 139 – 71 = 68. Write 68 in E.** - In the third row, we know the value of
**Q,R,S.**Hence value of**P=139-(Q+R+S)= 139 –(21+51+32)= 139 – 104 = 35. Write 35 in P.** - Now in the second vertical column, we know the values of
**B,F,Q.**Hence value of**X = 139 – (12+50+21) = 139- 83 = 56. Write 56 in X** - Now in the third vertical column, we know the values of
**C,G,R.**Hence value of**X = 139 – (18+17+51) = 139- 86 = 53. Write 53 in Y** - Now add the values of W,X,Y and Z. You will get 139 is the total.

Hurray!!! **MAGIC SQUARE FOR 22-12-1887 IS READY**

**In step number 10, we have divided 101 into 50 and 51. Instead it can be divided into q and 101 or 1 and 100 or 2 and 99 etc. etc… Interestingly we can divide it as -1 and 102 or -2 and 103 or -3 ans 104 etc. While dividing each number, if the numbers are slightly changed, we can get a new Magic square. **

**Hence we can make hundreds of, thousands of, millions of date of birth magic squares for any given date**

**Enjoy Magic square for your date of Birth!!! In various methods….**

hi

thanks for this update , but i am not able to figure out the points 10 and 11 .

in both there is mentioned – G+ Q .

plus there is a typo in point 4 – C should be 18 and not 19.

if possible please explain

thanks

Dear Mini, Thanks for your kind correction. I corrected all mistakes like, top row third as 18 and C+G as A + F . Thank for your interest. Sorry for the mistake. I am taking all efforts to bring it as an exemplary one. Thanks
