How many squares/spaces on a chess board?

Oct 21st, 2017

there are 204 squares. this is how you get the total squares

there are many more different-sized squares on the chessboard, apart from the normal 64 that you can see directly. this are the other squares.

1, 8x8 square
4, 7x7 squares
9, 6x6 squares
16, 5x5 squares
25, 4x4 squares
36, 3x3 squares
49, 2x2 squares
64, 1x1 squares

Therefore, there are actually 64 + 49 + 36 + 25 + 16 + 9 + 4 + 1 squares on a chessboard! (in total 204).

please best my answer. thank you and welcome
