3. Goten77

5. sydthekid00

6. Goten77

7. ide6

41

8. Goten77

how do u get 41?

9. SamiiBelle

I got 32.

10. ide6

the big one and then all the smaller ones added inside from every way

11. SamiiBelle

34*

12. Goten77

this 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?

13. SamiiBelle

20. Goten77

21. Goten77

@jollysailorbold how?

22. jollysailorbold

16 for the easy base ones, 2 for the over lapping ones, 1 for the whole thing. plus these 6 |dw:1355717269885:dw| plus those 4 |dw:1355717353677:dw| plus those 4 |dw:1355717381095:dw| (to be continued)

23. jollysailorbold

two more there |dw:1355717454848:dw|

24. jollysailorbold

plus 8 more |dw:1355717555654:dw| so 16 + 2 +1 + 6 + 4 +4 + 2 + 8 = 43 hahah i guess i got 43 then! (correct me if i'm wrong?)

25. SamiiBelle

I just got 52.

26. Goten77

27. jollysailorbold
