How many squares are there in this image?

I have counted 40, but I dont know what the correct answer is.

If this shape is 4 units by 4 units, then there are

8 squares that are 1/2 x 1/2,

18 squares that are 1 x 1,

9 squares that are 2 x 2,

4 squares that are 3 x 3, and

1 square that is 4x4.

So, we take 8 + 18 + 9 + 4 + 1 = 40, so that sounds correct to me.

I can answer whatever questions you ask except how to trisect an angle. The ones I can answer include constructing parallel lines, dividing a line into n sections, bisecting an angle, splitting an angle in half, and almost anything else that is done in geometry.

I have been assisting people in Geometry since the 80's.
