    OK we are only week 2 of 'big school' and already I'm stuck on his homework

    Make a 3 by 3 magic square using these numbers:

    -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4

    Each row column and diagonal must add up to 0.

    Maths really isn't my strong point

    Anyone

    about 30 seconds

    I remembered something similar from MANY years ago and I was pretty sure 0 had to go in the middle.
