Vol 1: Just for fun

I though I would start out by showing a large magic square
magic square
This is a magic square published in the Journal of Recreational Mathematics. It not only has the property that the sum of the entries in each row and column is the same but also that successive nested squares from 11 x 11 to 3 x 3 are also magic squares.

Another property of this magic square is that all of the entries are prime numbers.
