Hi everyone!

In this set, we'll be talking about the relationship between the size, shape of a grid and the number of quadrilaterals.

First, we have to know what is a quadrilateral and what is a grid.


Quadrilateral is a polygon with 4 sides and 4 vertices.


Grids are shapes made by multiple congruent quadrilaterals aligning together, commonly squares. In this set, we'll all be using grids made with squares. Originally, it should be called grid of squares, but we'll just call it grid for short.

Grid Grid Grid Grid

All grids have a size, in this set, all sizes of a grid are denoted as a×ba\times b where aa is the length of the grid, and bb is the height of the grid.

For example, the left diagram above shows a 5×55\times 5 grid, a=b=5a=b=5, the right diagram above shows a 4×34\times 3 grid, a=4a=4, b=3b=3.

The variables aa and bb will be frequently used in the following pages.

This is one part of Grids and Quadrilaterals.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
