When W.G. invited us to his party he rewired the buttons' panel in the elevator and placed next to it a note:
The fun starts here and now. Originally the numbers were in sequence in a way that numbers 1 and 2 were neighbors - horizontally or vertically, 2 and 3 likewise and so on.
Now on 8 of 16 buttons the numbers were erased and then on 4 additional buttons the original numbers were replaced by the wrong ones.
Restore the original layout, press button 15 and join the fun!
Pressing any other button will get you 90 seconds or less of elevator music and a free ride to a wrong floor...
Can you locate the correct button?

A drawer is divided into 9 square boxes, creating a 3*3 grid.
Your task is to create a "magic square" by putting a distinct amount of money in each of the boxes in a way that all of the 8 sums (vertical, horizontal and diagonal) will be the same.
Only standard American coins are allowed, i.e. 1,5,10,25,50, and 100c.
What is the minimal amount of coins ?
Show their distribution.
