The guest  has  correct number of  squares, but  not the correct area sum We will  have   9   1 x 1    squares    ....area  = 9

We will  have  4     2 x 2     squares ......area =  4 squares each with an area of  4 = 16

W will have  1   3 x 3     square........area =   9

The sum of these possible  A's    is     16 +  18 =   34

( I believe  this is correct....)

BTW....there is a formula  for finding the  number of squares in a n x n  grid like this

It    is

n ( n + 1) (2n + 1) / 6

Check

3 ( 4) ( 7)   /  6     =    84  / 6    =   14   !!!   Jan 31, 2021

No : the answer wa possible areas are 1,2,4,5, and 9 . So sum of all possible areas was 21
