Count how many perfect squares of all possible sizes are hidden in the cross of dots below, and post your answer. (A square is counting if any four dots are placed exactly in its respective corners).

I think only 4 tilty ones, though, not 8, so I amend my answer to 13.

(Note, it helps if you print it out and actually connect the dots. I hand-did the cross at first, and that is hard to do exactly and obscures some of the square possibilities.)

You Know...... just by adding 4 more dots (each in the empty corners) you would probably get 3 times as many squares....
Anyone wanna try???
