# Creative Magic Squares: Single Letter Representations

This work brings magic squares of orders 3 to 10 in terms of single letter “a”, where a can take any value from 1 to 9. The magic squares of orders 8 and 9 are written in two ways, i.e, one as normal magic squares and another as bimagic squares. In case of order 10, we have written it in three different ways. One as normal way, the second as block of order 8, divided again in four blocks of order 4. The third is with inner block of order 8 as bimagic square.

As we wrote above, this work brings magic squares with single letter “a”, where a can take any value from 1 to 9. The work can be downloaded at the following link:

Below are examples of the magic squares done in this work:

### Observations:

The last two magic squares of order 10 are known as block-bordered magic squares. For more details see the link below:

Before we write examples of magic squares, below is an idea of single letter representations of numbers:
