I am currently doing a piece of maths coursework on how many squares there are in a given shape, trying to find a general formula that will work, but every method I have tried has resulted in a dead end. Does anyone have any ideas or know the formula?

I did this coursework - as far as I know there isnt actaully a definite formula - a deliberate attempt to confuse you by the examiners and try and get you to try different lines of investiagtion perhaps?? who knows?!??! they're crazy. Just try your best - talk to your teacher! I found that she heklped me a lot

I did this course work too and some how got a B for it. My dad who had A level maths could not work out the formular at all. (Yes I was a very naughty boy and asked him to help me).
