4 x 6 = 24

Counting squares whose sides are along the grid-lines, there are 154.

Squares in the Egyptian Grid System were measured by cubit rods. For example, 6 cubits is equivalent to roughly 10 feet.

4 x 6 = 24

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?'

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.

6... with a remainder of 6 1x1 squares.

7 x 7 = 49 of the smallest squares if there are 7 squares on each side. The total number of "squares" of any size (1 to 49 of the smallest squares) is 140. The number can be calculated from the formula [(n)(n+1)(2n+1)] / 6 where n is the grid size.
