There are many different sized squares on a chessboard. The smallest squares are in an 8x8 grid, so we have 64 small squares. There are 7x7 2x2 squares, so we have 49 2x2 squares There are 6x6 3x3 squares, so we have 36 3x3 squares There are 5x5 4x4 squares, so we have 25 4x4 squares There are 4x4 5x5 squares, so we have 16 5x5 squares There are 3x3 6x6 squares, so we have 9 6x6 squares There are 2x2 7x7 squares, so we have 4 7x7 squares And there's the one big square that's the chessboard. All this adds up to 204 squares.

depends on the size of the square
You really should do your own homework - this is a question designed to make you analyse number patterns and devise a method to predict the answer that can be applied to grids of differing size. If we start with a square cut into a 3x3 grid, we can count the nine single (1x1) squares in the grid, the one 3x3 square, and then four 2x2* squares, making a total of 14. Try it out, then work your way up to 6x6 (a 36 square grid) by way of 4x4 and 5x5, looking to see how the grid's dimensions correlate to the number of varying-sized squares that can be counted. As a tip- in a 6x6 grid, you will have one 6x6 square, thirty-six 1x1 squares, and how many 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5 squares? *The squares can overlap, obviously.
Actually, there is more than 81 squares. SQUARE SIZES Multiplication to do: 1x1=81 ---> 9x9 2x2=64 ---> 8x8 3x3=49 ---> 7x7 4x4=36 ---> 6x6 5x5=25 ---> 5x5 6x6=16 ---> 4x4 7x7=9 ---> 3x3 8x8=4 ---> 2x2 9x9=1 ---> 1x1 now add up all products or amount of squares for each size.....and you get? 285!!! there are 285 squares inn a 9x9 grid.
In total, there are 204 squares: 1, 8x8 square, 4, 7x7 squares, 9, 6x6 squares, 16, 5x5 squares, 25, 4x4 squares, 36, 3x3 squares, 49, 2x2 squares, 64 1x1 squares.1, 8x8 square4, 7x7 squares9, 6x6 squares16, 5x5 squares25, 4x4 squares36, 3x3 squares49, 2x2 squares64, 1x1 squares1, 8x8 square4, 7x7 squares9, 6x6 squares16, 5x5 squares25, 4x4 squares36, 3x3 squares49, 2x2 squares64, 1x1 squares1, 8x8 square4, 7x7 squares9, 6x6 squares16, 5x5 squares25, 4x4 squares36, 3x3 squares49, 2x2 squares64, 1x1 squares
The first answer given was 6 x 6 = 36. I think a better answer is 91. The grid contains not only 36 small squares, it contains 25 2x2 squares, 16 3x3 squares, etc., all the way up to one big 6x6 square. If you think this interpretation makes no sense, then consider the parallel question, 'How many rectangles are there in a 6 x 6 grid?'
8x8=64(1x1)7x7=49(2x2)6x6=36(3x3)5x5=25(4x4)4x4=16(5x5)3x3=9 (6x6)2x2=4 (7x7)1x1=1 (8x8)64+49+36+25+16+9+4+1=204Total=204
it includes more than the 64 little squares you must include the 2x2 3x3 4x4 5x5 6x6 etc... squares too
64 1x1 Squares 49 2x2 Squares 36 3x3 Squares 25 4x4 Squares 16 5x5 Squares 9 6x6 Squares 4 7x7 Squares 1 8x8 Square 204 Squares altogether
1x1 squares = 1 2x2 squares = 4 3x3 squares = 9 4x4 squares = 16 5x5 squares = 25 6x6 squares = 36 7x7 squares = 49 8x8 squares = 64 ___ for a total of 204 squares. - wjs1632 -
204 in total, broken down as follows 1, 8x8 square 4, 7x7 squares 9, 6x6 squares 16, 5x5 squares 25, 4x4 squares 36, 3x3 squares 49, 2x2 squares 64, 1x1 squares
I get 204 There are 64 1x1 squares; 49 2x2 squares; 36 3x3 squares; 25 4x4 squares; 16 5x5 squares; 9 6x6 squares, 4 7x7 squares and 1 8x8 square.
There 64 1x1 squares on a chessboard. There are also 49 2x2 squares, 36 3x3 squares, 25 4x4, 16 5x5, 9 6x6, 4 7x7 and 1 8x8. Total number of squares on a chessboard is therefore 204.
196 full squares. If you can cut the 6x6 squares in thirds to fill the excess then it's 200 2/3.
There are 64 single squares, but if you include every square that can possibly be made, there are 204: 1 8x8 square 4 7x7 squares 9 6x6 squares 16 5x5 squares 25 4x4 squares 36 3x3 squares 49 2x2 squares 64 1x1 squares
Ok, here goes. There are 64 1x1 squares on a standard checkerboard. There are 204 total squares on an eight-by-eight checkerboard. 64 1x1 squares, 49 2x2 squares, 36 3x3 squares, 25 4x4 squares , 16 5x5 squares, 9 6x6 squares , 4 7x7 squares, 1 8x8 square, .
64 squares. EDIT There are 64 1x1 squares on a standard checkerboard, but there are also squares of other sizes. There are; 64 1x1 squares 49 2x2 squares 36 3x3 squares 25 4x4 squares 16 5x5 squares 9 6x6 squares 4 7x7 squares 1 8x8 square So in total there are 204 squares on a standard checkerboard.

There are 49 of the smallest squares. However, any grid forms "squares" that consist of more than one of the smallest squares. For example, there are four different 6x6 squares that each include 36 of the small squares, nine different 5x5 squares, sixteen 4x4 squares, twenty-five 3 x 3 squares, and thirty-six different squares that contain 4 of the small squares. One could therefore discern 140 distinct "squares." The number can be calculated from the formula [(n)(n+1)(2n+1)] / 6 where n is the grid size.

This is a pretty tricky question, as on a 8x8 board you'd think there were 64 squares. You can count 204 only if you include not only 1x1 squares, but 2x2 squares, 3x3 squares, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7 and the big 8x8 square.
Well technically there are 204 squares in total 8x8=1 7x7=4 6x6=9 5x5=16 4x4=25 3x3=36 2x2=49 1x1=64 thus 1+4+9+16+25+36+49+64=204 squares
There are a total of 7 numbers that are squares between 1 and 50. They are: 1 (1x1) 4 (2x2) 9 (3x3) 16 (4x4) 25 (5x5) 36 (6x6) 49 (7x7)
