A chess board is a square board that has 8 rows and 8 columns of squares.
To count the number of squares on a chess board, we can start by counting the number of 1×1 squares. There are 64 of these because there are 8 rows and 8 columns.
Next, we can count the number of 2×2 squares. There are 49 of these because there are 7 rows and 7 columns where a 2×2 square can fit.
We can continue this process for 3×3 squares, 4×4 squares, and so on.
In total, there are 204 squares on a chess board.
