It's clear about 8 squares but next 3 are suppose to be like following

9th big square of squares 1, 2, 8, 7.

10th big square of squares 3, 4, 6, 5.

11th big square of squares 2, 3, 7, 6.

Did anyone else think of a solution of roman numerals?

I dont really have time to make a diagram, but if you move the 2nd line from the left to form an X with the first line on the left, and move the 3rd line from the leftslightly ot the left, it makes XI^II

Its a bit messy, but it works.
