Partition the given rectangle into 4 equal rows and 4 equal columns of same-sized squares, and then fill in the given blank.
Number of small squares obtained =
The correct answer is 16.
Given the rectangle below:
First, we divide the rectangle into 4 equal rows.
Then, we divide this into 4 equal columns.
Dividing the rectangle into 4 equal rows and 4 equal columns, results in small squares of the same size.
Next, we count these squares.
So, the number of small squares made is 16.
