A challenging Magic Square

Find a 3x3 Magic Square where each row, column and both diagonals result in positive number 9

You are allowed any of the 4 math operations : add, subtract, multiply or divide. NO OTHER OPERATIONS ALLOWED

You must use numbers 1 thru 9 (positive integers only, no negative signs within the number boxes). All 9 numbers must be used.

You can use a Square root or Cube root or a Factorial function WITHIN the number box only. No other function allowed. For example the number box can say 3! which would be a value of 6 but you have used the number 3 only.( you cannot use 3 somewhere else). If you use 3! then you must use 6 somewhere else. The square must show all 9 positive integers.

Mathematical operations must be in the direction of the arrows. No programming. I found one solution but there may be more.

As a broader question can one program the square to get any number (not just 9) with multiple math operations using 1 to 9??

• I am confused. What original source? I have created this with the idea that instead of the Original Magic Square of 3X3 for getting 15 by just adding all rows and columns annd diagonals I could get another number by adding other math operations. Please tell me what original source you are talking about.

• Whoops. This looks pretty much exactly like what puzzle copy-pasters do, so apologies for jumping to that conclusion. I've removed the hold. Nothing to see here, move along ... ;)
