*Puzzle
Fun* extended this work, showing minimal solutions for various
numbers of cells and for single sets of the polyominoes of a given size.

Here I show magic squares for pairs of pentominoes, using at least one copy of each. As in Math Magic, solutions have as few tiles as are known to be possible.
