Abstract

Magic polygrams, which are extensions of magic squares, can be found with computer programs through exhaustive searches. However, most polygrams are too large for this method. Thus, these possibilities must be limited algorithmically. This paper investigates both a large traditional hexagram and a traditional octagram. Systematic approaches based on the arrangement of even and odd numbers are used to identify solutions.
