The conventional answer to how many squares on a chess board would be sixty-four but it is more than that. If you are only looking at the small squares on which the chess pieces sit, then you would be overlooking the larger pieces formed by grouping these smaller squares together.
Exactly How Many Squares are There?
For this answer, you would need to analyse the chess board carefully. The key is to think about how many positions there are that each size of the square can be located.
