The Onitiu Problem 24x24

 I have now solved the Onitiu Problem on the 24 by 24 board. This is the first case where there are six intersections of the circuit of squares (shown in red) with the circuit of complements (shown in blue). The six square numbers where this occurs are 1, 36, 196, 289, 324, 484, the common difference being 288 which is half of 24x24 = 576.


   Once again the squares and diamonds feature strongly but even so I found this a difficult task.
