A kcity is a k by k grid of positive integers so that every integer greater than 1 is the sum of one integer from the same row and one integer from the same column. Below is an example of a 3city: 1 1 2 2 3 1 6 4 1 Make a 5city that has an integer that is greater than or equal to 150.

you've posted this 3 times now. I looked at it for a bit, didn't make any progress. I imagine others have done the same. Sometimes we don't have the answers.

Sorry. I thought that the algorithm of the website might have pushed the thread to the bottom where many people wouldn't see it. Won't happen again.

This is the way I would set it up (think about it): Let $\displaystyle a_{ij}$ be a typical grid element. Then $\displaystyle a_{ij}=a_{ik}+a_{mj}, \ k\neq i, m\neq j$
