A square game board is divided into smaller squares, which are colored red and black as on a checkerboard. All four corner squares are black. Let r and b stand for the numbers of red and black squares, respectively. Find an expression for the difference between the number of black squares and the number of red squares.

yea im think that too If all 4 corner squares are black then there must be an odd number of squares on each side of the board. I don't know how many squares are on a checker board.

if squares are alternately black and red which makes sense i guess then the relationship ix b = r + 1.

or b - r = 1
