    Was curious how people were getting 36 instead of 40. Thanks for explaining HolyGod. Did everyone else who got 36 skip the 2x2 squares on the edges but not the corners? 28,30,32,34 in ted`s diagram.

    Number Of squares in n × n grid is
    = 1^2 + 2^2 + ... + n^2
    = n(n+ 1)(2n + 1)/6

    Here we have a 4x4 grid and two 2x2 grids therefore n=4 and n=2. Substituting for n=4, 4(4+1)(2(4) + 1)/6 = 30 and for n=2, 2*(2(2+1)(2(2) + 1)/6) = 10.

    30 + 10 = 40

    It`s definitely 40. Imagine first the two middle "out of place" squares are not there. There are 16 1X1 squares, 9 2X2 squares, 4 3X3 squares, and 1 4X4 square; so 30 squares total. Add in the two middle squares (32) and the way they sit making 4 smaller squares out of each one for 8 extra squares total: giving us 40 squares.

    @everyone who says "the white one outside" counts, if that`s true then the white ones inside the black lines count too.

    "Don`t forget the white one around the outside."

    Oh yeah, but surely you could also count the exteriors and interiors of each thick line as separate lines, therefore something like doubling the number of squares?
