A magic polygon also called a perimeter magic polygon[1][2] is a polygon with an integers on its sides that all add up to a magic sum.[3][4] It is where positive integers (from 1 to N) on a k-sided polygon add up to a constant, or magic sum.[1] Magic polygons are the generalization of other magic shapes[5] such as magic triangles.[6]

This displays order 3 magic triangles, a type of magic polygon.
