We have some identical paper squares which are black on one side of the sheet and white on the other side. We can join nine squares together to make a 3 by 3 sheet of squares by placing each of the nine squares either white side up or black side up. Two of these 3 by 3 sheets are distinguishable if neither can be made to look like the other by rotating the sheet or by turning it over. How many distinguishable 3 by 3 squares can we form?
