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.
