How many squares are there on a chess board?
P.S. No, the answer is not 64
Explanation:
Of course, as you might think, aren’t there only 8 x 8 = 64 squares on a chess board? Well, no. All these 64 squares are squares of 1 block. However, one can notice that there are squares of 4 blocks too i.e., 7 x 7 = 49. Likewise, until the largest square which is the chess board itself.
1, 8×8 square

4, 7×7 squares

9, 6×6 squares

16, 5×5 squares

25, 4×4 squares

36, 3×3 squares

49, 2×2 squares

64, 1×1 squares

Thus, totally, there are 64 + 49 + 36 + 25 + 16 + 9 + 4 + 1 = 204 squares on a chess board.
