Write a program that generates a magic square for an array of size 3 * 3.

Please follow the given steps:

 1. Declare a 2D array of 3 * 3.

2. Fill the array with unique values (1-9) generated randomly:

 a. Generate a random number in the range of 1-9

b. Check if the random number generated has been previously generated in the array (check if is unique or not)

c. If the number is unique, store it in your 2D array.

3. Display the 2D array

4. Check if the 2D array is a magic square:

i.e: sum of each row = sum of each col = sum of each diagonal 5. Keep repeating (looping) steps 1 to 4 till magic square found.

Sample Output:

1 2 3

4 5 6
