# If 3 out of 5 squares are colored in what is the percent?

60%

To find out the percent of colored in squares, you divide 3 by 5. Therefore, 3 divided by 5 is 0.6 or 60%

To find out the percent of squares not colored in, you divide 2 by 5 to get 0.4 or 40%.

### How many squares of any size are there in a 5x5 grid?

The answer depends on whether the 5*5 grid is 5*5 points or 5*5 squares (like a mini chessboard). If 5*5 chessboard 1 square of 5*5 4 squares of 4*4 9 squares of 3*3 16 squares of 2*2 and 25 squares of 1*1 making 55 squares in all. If 5*5 points then 1 square of 4*4 4 squares of 3*3 9 squares of 2*2 and 16 squares of 1*1 making 30 squares in all.
