    This was just posted on my Facebook wall. I thought it might be fun. How many squares do you see?

    I can see 25 including the big one but some people have seen 36 - I'm not sure what I'm missing.   I hope it 's fun and apologies to all of you that may already of seen it.

    I see 40 as well. There are 8 itty bitty squares, 18 regular size squares, 9 double size squares, 4 triple size squares, and one large square.  8+18+9+4+1 = 40.
