Area Representations Magic Squares With Fraction Numbers Entries

It is well known that every magic square can be written as perfect square sum of entries. It is always possible with odd number entries starting from 1. In case of odd order magic squares we can also write with consecutive natural number entries. Still, it is unknown whether it is possible to even order magic squares. In case of odd order magic squares, still we can write them with minimum perfect square sum of entries. Based on this idea of perfect square sum of entries, we have written a magic square representing areas. It is done for the magic squares of orders 3 to 11. In all the cases, the area representations are more that one way. The whole work can be download at the following link:
