    Smile Help with a 3-d magic square

    OK, for all the math-huggers and interested people.

    I was given the challenge to solve a puzzle.
    This puzzle involves 27 numbers (which are 1,2,3 etc upto and including 27), which have to be placed in a 3*3*3 cube.
    The sum of each row, column and pillar (so all 3 directions) has to be 42.

    And to start you off, one corner has to contain the number 25.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me solve this math problem.
