Puzzle on Magical Matrix

Solution for the Game

Answer – No, we can see that there are eight subsets of 1,9, resulting in a total of 15.
{1, 5, 9}, {2, 8, 5}, {3, 5, 7}, {4, 5, 6}, {1, 6, 8}, {2, 4, 9}, {2, 7, 6} and {3, 8, 4} are the numbers.

  • We can try to create a magical square that can deduce all conceivable combinations that add up to 15.
  • Each row, column, and diagonal amounts to 15 in this example. These rows, columns, and diagonals indicate all of the various ways to get the number fifteen.
  • It’s as if we’re playing Tic-Tac-Toe on the magic square. We also understand that no one can guarantee victory in this game. At we can, at most, devise a strategy for not losing the game.
