How many squares do you see? Solution

How many squares do you see?  I see this question many times with many different answers.  So, how many can you find:


Here is my solution:

8 1/4 size squares
(16) 1x1 squares
 
two more 1x1 squares

four 2x2 squares

two more 2x2 squares

2 more 2x2 squares

one last 2x2 square

3x3 square

3x3 square

3x3 square

3x3 square


4x4 square
 So my answer is 40.  Did you find any that I missed?  If so, please let me know below.

    1. All rectangles have 4 right angles. All four side have to be the same length to be a square.
