### How is 4 the maximum number of nonoverlapping squares with sides of length 3 that will fit inside of a square with sides of length 6?

Each of the four squares, combined, must have a perimeterwhich adds up to that of the larger square. Since the larger square has a perimeter of 24, so must these squares. However, since we are placing them next to each other, the 2 sides of each square facing other sides do not count. Each individual square has a perimeter of 12, so that makes 48. Subtracting the lengths of the sides placed adjacent to each other (8 sides x a length of 3 = 24), we get a perimeter of 24, the perimeter of the larger square. Because the perimeters are equal, there is no room left for another square without overlapping.

If someone fills the inside of the rectangle by drawing hundreds of rows of tiny squares, the way you find out how many squares there are is: you count the number of rows, then you count the number of columns, then you multiply the two numbers. That's exactly what you're doing when you measure the width, measure the length, and multiply.
