Complete the above grid such that:
  1. Each of the letters K to Z represents a different integer from 1 to 16.
  2. Each of the columns, each of the rows and each of the main diagonals equals A.
  3. Each of the 16 letters from K to Z is repeated precisely four times in the above grid.
  4. A = P*T + R
  5. Z = 2*R
  6. N = V/3
  7. T = Y - (N + K)
  8. U = S + L
  9. M*Q + O + K = W + X

(In reply to re(2): Hint! by Salil)

Like among endless possibilities one possibility is

K=5,L=8,M=10,N=3,O=13,P=11,Q=1,R=2,S=7,T=6,U=15,V=9,W=16,

X=12,Y=14 and Z=4. ( In this also S,L =(7 or 8), M,Q=(10 or 1)

and W,X=(12 OR 16)) still satisfy the equation.

But how do I know this is correct. The 9 clues given are not enough. Pls check.
