    Count them up and leave an answer. Not including the thin white border.

    by dimension:
    1/2 x 1/2 : 8
    1 x 1 : 16 + 2 (squares made up of 1/2 's) [18]
    2 x 2 : 9 (3 rows of 3)
    3 x 3 : 4 (a 3 x 3 square from each corner)
    4 x 4: 1 (the whole thing)

    8 + 18 + 9 + 4 + 1 = 40

    40 (apparently i was off by one before i did this)

    showing the math? I know what a square looks like, and I know how to count to 40. There is no showing anything. I declare myself the winner.
