## How many Squares in this picture #2

You might want to try How many squares – Part 1 before you attempt these 3 puzzles.

## 1.) How many squares are in this picture ?

## How many squares #6

## How many squares are there in this picture?

See Answer### There are a total of 17 squares.

**How?**

Let say smallest square is of side 1cms then

Number of squares with side 1cms: 6

Number of squares with side 2cms: 8

Number of squares with side 3cms: 2

Number of squares with side 4cms: 1

#### Thus, Total number of squares = 17

## How many squares #5

## how many squares are there in this image?

See Answer### There are a total of 79 squares.

**How?**

Lets assume smallest square side length is 0.5 cms, then

Number of squares with side 0.5 cms: 30

Number of squares with side 1 cms: 16+11

Number of squares with side 1.5 cms: 2 + 3 + 2

Number of squares with side 2 cms: 9 + 1

Number of squares with side 2.5 cms: 0

Number of squares with side 3 cms: 4

Number of squares with side 3.5 cms: 0

Number of squares with side 4 cms: 1

————————————

**Thus total number of squares are: 79**

## How many squares #4

## 1.) How many squares do you see in this picture ?

See Answer### Answer with solution

As all the sides are either horizontal or vertical we can say squares diagonals should be parallel. Now to see if the diagonals are parallel or not, i have drawn the diagonals where its not clear if it is a square or rectangle in the image below.

You can see i have labelled few sides as x and y to help you.

So,

Number of squares with side x/2 = 4

Number of squares with side x = 4

Number of squares with side y = 3

Number of squares with side x+y = 6

Number of squares with side x+y = 0

Number of squares with side x+2y = 1

Number of squares with side 2x+2y = 1

#### Thus, Total number of squares in above puzzle are 19.

## How many squares? Part 3

## 1.) How many squares are in this picture ?

See Answer### There are a total of 16 squares in above figure.

**How?**

Lets Count..

5 black colored squares.

1 red colored square.

1 blue color square.

4 small green colored squares in middle.

5 large green colored squares.

Thus, a total of 5+1+1+4+5=16 squares.

## 2.) How many squares are in this picture ?

## Four How many squares are there

1.)

See Answer#### There are total of 40 squares.

**How?**

Let’s assume the smallest square side is 0.5cm in length.

Now count the squares with different length :-

0.5cm : 8

1cm : 16 +2(in the middle)

2cm : 9

3cm : 4

4cm : 1

————

Total : 40

**How many squares are in this picture ?**See Answer

**How?**

Lets count…

Squares with side length equal to 1 matchstick: 9

Squares with side length equal to 2 matchsticks: 5(2+1+2)

Square with side length equal to 3 matchsticks: 1 (This is difficult to find, and easy to miss)

Square with side length equal to 4 matchsticks: 1 (Everybody knows)

So total number of squares : 16
