# Let's Face It

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

In this problem, you will probably find it helps to do the solution practically. A good way to do this is to draw the net of a cube and to mark a $4$ by $4$ square on each face. Then fill in the numbers for the magic square on one face.

 1 8 12 13 15 10 6 3 14 11 7 2 4 5 9 16

After that you need to work your way over the net, putting a variation of the magic square on each face, and making the numbers coming on the edges of the cube correspond. Then you can make your net into a cube. We'll leave that to you!
