From the most basic 3×3 magic square:

[8  1  6]

 

[3  5  7]

 

[4  9  2]

rows: 8162+3572+4922 = 1,035,369 = 6182+7532+2942

columns: 8342+1592+6722 = 1,172,421 = 4382+9512+2762

right diagonals: 8522+1742+6392 = 1,164,501 = 2582+4712+9362

and 8522+4172+3962 = 1,056,609 = 2582+7142+6932

left diagonals: 6542+8792+1322 = 1,217,781 = 4562+9782+2312

This fact is true for any 3×3 magic square.

 

In a triangle,

3 perpendiculars dropped from the vertices on the opposite sides intersect at the orthocenter.

3 medians from the vertices to the midpoints of the opposite sides intersect at the centroid.

3 internal angle bisectors intersect at the incenter, which is the center of the circle tangent to its 3 sides.

3 perpendicular bisectors of three sides intersect at the circumcenter, which is the center of the circle passing through its 3 vertices.

3 symmedians intersect at the Lemoine point (or Grebe point, symmedian point). For each angle, the internal angle bisector bisects the angle formed by the symmedian and the median.

An internal angle bisector and two of the other external angle bisectors intersect at an excenter of an excircle, tangent to its 3 sides. There are 3 excircles, corresponding to 3 angles.
