Magic Hexagram


A magic hexagram is a hexagram partitioned into triangles such that the sums of numbers in the six directions illustrated above sum to the same number.


There are exactly two solutions as illustrated above, where these two solutions are complementary (Bolt et al. 1991). They have sums 33 and 32, respectively.
