If you have an 8x8 checkered square (i.e., a chess board) how many squares would there be in total?

Is that 8 inches or feet? How big are the checkered squares? if they were 1 x 1 then 64 I think.

The size of the squares don't matter really but Think about how many squares can hide in side a bigger square. Wanna try again?

The correct answer is the one right below you. Thanks for trying though.

it's really 64.the area of a square is the side^2.and that's 8*8=64.

No it is 204. There are many squares inside if an 8x8 checkered square. Thanks for guessing though. I would have put a picture up to let you see but it won't let me.

You are absolutely correct. How did you do that so easily. It took me a while.

That would be 64 or is this a tricked out question maybe?

It isn't a trick really but the answer isn't 64 care to try again. This is one of those that requires more though at least it did for me.
