Solutions to yesterday's starter
Thank you for your solutions. Please keep sending them in!
Alex sent in a fantastic solution:
Here is my solution (I have included all the overlapping squares and rectangles):
Number of 1x1 squares = 32
Number of 2x2 squares = 16
Number of 3x3 squares = 6
Number of 4x4 squares = 4
I think that there are 56 squares in total.
- Number of 1x2 rectangles = 47
- Number of 1x3 rectangles = 30
- Number of 1x4 rectangles = 21
- Number of 1x5 rectangles = 14
- Number of 1x6 rectangles = 6
- Number of 1x7 rectangles = 2
- Number of 2x3 rectangles = 17
- Number of 2x4 rectangles = 10
- Number of 2x5 rectangles = 3
- Number of 3x4 rectangles = 7
- Number of 3x5 rectangles = 2
- Number of 4x5 rectangles = 1
In total there are 170 rectangles. Alex S (Hardwick) Y/5

Here’s my answer for today’s Maths Challenge.
I found 56 squares and lots more rectangles too many to count. I got to 70.
