The simplest squares are QUYX, URVY, YVSW and XYWT i.e. 4 in number.

The squares composed of two components each are IMYP, MJNY, YNKO and PYOL i.e. 4 in number.

The squares composed of three components each are AEYH, EBFY, YFCG and HYGD i.e. 4 in number.

There is only one square i.e. QRST composed of four components.

There is only one square i.e. IJKL composed of eight components.

There is only one square i.e. ABCD composed of twelve components.

Formula 4n + n.
n is number of square in one sector.
There is 3 square in one sector.
Then 4*3+3 =15.

Main square Embed 3 square.
Each part of square is 4.
Then, 4 * 3(each part embed 3 square).
Total = 12.
Main square embed + each part of square = total square.
3 + 12 = 15.

5n.
Where n is concentric square.
Here n = 3.

So no of triangle is 15.
