I have no idea how to begin doing dis programme. I have to construct a magic square (a square that the sum of all the numbers in any row, column or diagonal is always the same). I have to use a 2D array for the table and I have to ask for the size of the square.
THE RULES FOR CREATING A MAGIC SQUARE
The square always has an odd number of rows and columns
The starting position is always in the top row and the middle position.
The moves are
move up one and to the left
if move causes you to go off da square, use wrapping idea (bottom row is visualized as being placed abouve row one.
if move up and left encounters a filled square, then drop down one row and enter the value
otherwise, continue with up one and left one rule.
ANY IDEAS WILL BE HELPFUL!!!!
