**MathMate**, Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 5:30pmNumber of 1x1 squares = 64.

Number of 2x2 squares:

7 rows x 7 columns = 49

Number of 3x3 squares:

6 rows x 6 columns = 36

....

Number of 8x8 squares:

1 row x 1 col. = 1

So the total number of squares

=1²+2²+3²+...+8²

=n(n+1)(2*n+1)/6

where n=8.
