There are many different-sized squares on the chessboard. The complete list number of squares is shown below:

1, 8x8 square
4, 7x7 squares
9, 6x6 squares
16, 5x5 squares
25, 4x4 squares
36, 3x3 squares
49, 2x2 squares
64, 1x1 squares

Therefore, there are actually 64 + 49 + 36 + 25 + 16 + 9 + 4 + 1 = 204 squares on a chessboard.
