    You guys were counting the only outlined squares. You can make more squares with the existing ones.

    My brain isn't keeping up with me but there was a formula or something like that for solving things like this in discrete math. Anybody knows what i'm talking about here? Combinatorics or something like that was the name.

    Counted 35, then saw the post that said no one had answered correctly, went back, found 40! Glad to know I wasn't seeing things.
