    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 (Please excuse outdated slang and rather weak joke.)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?
