Given an n*m grid with n > m.
Orient the grid so n is its width. Divide the grid into two portions, an m*m square on the left and an (n-m)*m rectangle on the right. Count the squares that have their upper right-hand corners in the m*m square. There are m^2 of size 1*1, (m-1)^2 of size 2*2, ... up to 1^2 of size m*m. Now look at the n-m columns of lattice points in the rectangle on the right, in which we find upper right-hand corners of squares not yet counted. For each column we count m new 1*1 squares, m-1 new 2*2 squares, ... up to 1 new m*m square.
- Combining all these counts in summations
