    Let’s generalize a formula for mxn chess board( given n<m).

    So total no. of elements in the chess board would be squares.
    So, m*n.
    Then we will select 2*2 squares, which will be (m-1)*(n-1).
    On further repeating , we will get that:
    Total no. of squares= Σ(i=0 to i=n-1) (m-i)*(n-i)
