# Tips and Tricks on Figure Partition and Dot Situation

1
For counting shapes in an evenly divided shape take the following approach:
a. Start with counting unit shapes which are not composed of other shapes, we can call it Base 1.
b. Now switch to Base 2 or shapes composed of minimum smaller shapes to form bigger shape. For example, if we need to count squares then in this step we need to count squares which are formed of 4 smaller squares, any lesser number will not give you a square.
c. Gradually increase the number of composing shapes till we reach the biggest shape possible.
d. Add all the numbers and this is the answer

Drawing the figure in a rough sheet and shading the shapes with different coloured pens can also give you the right answer.
