    It's Magic...2010

    There are 16 consecutive numbers, when placed in the 4X4 diagram correctly will form a 2010 Magic Square. Each row of four numbers will sum to 2010. Each column of four numbers will sum to 2010. The four outer corners will sum to 2010. Likewise, the interior four squares (gray), and the four quadrants will each sum to 2010. Lastly, the two main diagonals will also sum to 2010.

    As with most of my puzzles, there may be more than one solution... But in this case, I believe it will be an alternate arrangement of the same 16 consecutive numbers. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Good luck.
