The 9x9 Magic Squares use numbers 1 to 81 only once and has the following properties :

Each row , column and the two diagonals adds up to 369 and the center most number has to be 41 !

There are many solutions and I give here a sample :

We can see that 9x9 Square has nine 3x3 Squares and each of these can be a Magic square with numbers out of the 1 to 81 set.

I give below a solution with 9 such 3x3 Squares :

It is not possible to have each 3x3 square add up to 123 and the entire row column or diagonal adding to 3x123 = 369

__Puzzle :__ Find the best solution such that each 3x3 Square will add to as close a sum to 123 with the least deviation [less or more] from 123 !

This Center Number 41 is true for the case of nine 3x3 Magic Squares where 1-81 numbers are placed in such a way as to contain 9 Mini Magic Squares as required in the Puzzle.
