hi jacks,

You can have squares that are 1 by 1; 2 by 2; 3 by 3; and 4 by 4.

EDIT:  You should also count the squares that are at 45 degrees to the grid.

There's an easy pattern to this, so finding that is a good beginning to the harder rectangle case.

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
