# Fill missing entries of a magic square

• Last Updated : 28 May, 2021

Given a 3X3 matrix mat with it’s left diagonal elements missing (set to 0), considering the sum of every row, column and diagonal of the original matrix was equal, the task is to find the missing diagonal elements and print the original matrix.
Examples:

Input: mat[][] = {{0, 7, 6}, {9, 0, 1}, {4, 3, 0}}
Output:
2 7 6
9 5 1
4 3 8
Row sum = Column sum = Diagonal sum = 15
Input: mat[][] = {{0, 1, 1}, {1, 0, 1}, {1, 1, 0}}
Output:
1 1 1
1 1 1
1 1 1

Approach: Let Sum denote the total sum excluding the diagonal elements,

Sum = total sum of the given matrix – diagonalSum
Sum = (3 * rowSum) – diagonalSum
Sum = (2 * rowSum) [Since, columnSum = rowSum = diagonalSum]
rowSum = Sum / 2

Hence, we can insert an element in every row such that the sum of the row is rowSum
Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ program to fill blanks with numbers``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to print the original matrix``int` `printFilledDiagonal(``int` `sq[])``{``    ``// Calculate the sum of all the elements``    ``// of the matrix``    ``int` `sum = 0;``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < 3; i++)``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < 3; j++)``            ``sum += sq[i][j];` `    ``// Required sum of each row (from the approach)``    ``sum /= 2;` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < 3; i++) {` `        ``// Row sum excluding the diagonal element``        ``int` `rowSum = 0;``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < 3; j++)``            ``rowSum += sq[i][j];` `        ``// Element that must be inserted at``        ``// diagonal element of the current row``        ``sq[i][i] = sum - rowSum;``    ``}` `    ``// Print the updated matrix``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < 3; i++) {``        ``for` `(``int` `j = 0; j < 3; j++)``            ``cout << sq[i][j] << ``" "``;``        ``cout << endl;``    ``}``}` `// Driver Program to test above function``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `sq = {``        ``{ 0, 7, 6 },``        ``{ 9, 0, 1 },``        ``{ 4, 3, 0 }``    ``};` `    ``printFilledDiagonal(sq);``    ``return` `0;``}`
