(emphasis added) There are five 1-by-1 squares, five 2-by-2 squares, and one 3-by-3 square.


A small square in the corner of a big square still equals two squares. Four contiguous squares (touching left-right and top-bottom) equals five squares--their outer perimeter forms a square.

With what, Sweetheart? I already said I counted eleven squares. Five plus five plus one = eleven. I was hoping to provide some enlightenment, is all.

Ooh, K-D, you're in S-pore! I'll have to tell Bingley, whom I dragged back here for a comment on Indonesian. He'll be glad to know he has such a close neighbor (Jakarta).
