8*8+7*7+6*6+5*5+4*4+3*3+2*2+1*1 = 498
8*8 for the tiniest squares,
7*7 for a square with 4 little squares
6*6 with 9 little squares, and so on...

204, do you mean with the 205th the whole chessboard?
I was half sleeping last post, that explains why my solution was wrong...

Don't worry. It's 205 only if you have a warped sense of humour.

No, Bowmann would be the 205th. (Please excuse outdated slang and rather weak joke.)

Anyway, how many rectangles on a chessboard?
