_74601486_new-magic-squares

Both squares are magic, but the square on the right is diabolical. The constant, 34, is obtained not just by adding the numbers in any column, line, or diagonal but also by adding four numbers from the square in other ways. The corner numbers add up to 34. Each 2X2 square adds up to 34. In fact, there are 86 different ways of reaching the same total. | Source: BBC
