Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is how i look at it 4 by 4 rows k so 4x4 = all the little ones = 16 then the 2 in the middle is 2 more = 18 + the 8 they each make up is 26 then the medium squares is the 2by2 ones and theres 9 of them so 26+9 = 35 then theres the 3by3 squares and theres 4 of them so thats 39 total + the big 1 = 40.. how do u get a 41th?
