**Solution**

Well, first, you must know the definition of a square. A square is a four-sided figure, with all sides equal, each with 90 degrees. So how many squares did you see?

**Let’s break it down:**

First, we have the outside lines = 1 square

Then, there are the four slightly smaller squares = 4 squares

The next square is in the middle = 1 square

The left corner has another square = 1 square

Finally, there are squares of the same size in the big square = 9 squares

1+4+1+1+9= 16 squares

**The answer is 16 squares!** Did you get that right? Well done!
