Which square is B3 on a chess board?

Picture the board in front of you. On the extreme left in the corner closest to you is the square A1. Move one square to the right and up to the third square from there you will find B3. The lines of squares going up and down are called files and are designated A to H beginning on the left and moving to the right. The lines of squares going horizontally are numbered 1 to 8 again moving from left to right. Thus, the square directly diagonally across the board from A1 up to the square on the extreme right and all the way up to the opponent's side is called H8.

How do you solve imperfect squares?

u cant get the excat answer but if you want 1) To find imperfect squares you estimate the square to the nearest integer 85 2) This is an imperfect square because no whole number multiplies itself to equal 85 you find the closest square but less than the imperfect squares answer 9*9=81 4) Now you find a square that is closest higher than the imperfect squares answer 10*10=100 5) So 85 lays between 9 and 10
