I'm not very Clever

I have stared at this problem designed for a six year old for some time before giving up! I always thought that I was good at these sort of problems.

Are my brain cells dying faster than I thought?

I would consider myself pretty good at maths and even knowing the answer I can't see how you can logically get to it...

I would have said it was J, just add up to diagonals.

I needed a calculator, pen and paper though....

 

Same but no calculator required.........................

its like those sudoku - what is the point of trying to make both diagonals have the same sum? Probably honing the brains of the next astronauts

ok so when the horizontals and verticals are subtracted they match, but still seems pointless

tbh, unless the schoolkid has had similar problems in class I see no way that a 6 year old would think "it's easy, I just find the number that means adding diagonally left and right adds up to the same total".
