**Reiny**, Friday, September 14, 2012 at 8:18amThe top layer has 1 block

the 2nd layer from the top has 4 blocks

the 3rd layer from the top has 9 blocks

the 4th has 16 blocks

the 5th has 25 blocks, and

the 6th has s36 blocks

So we have 1+4+9+16+25+36

= 91

btw, there is a formula for the sum of squares of the first n numbers

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

sumofsquares(6) = 6(7)(13)/6 = 91
