You are to color a 5x5 square grid using green, red, blue, and yellow. You must color it in a way where a square cannot share a side or a vertex with another square of the same color. What is the fewest amount of yellow squares needed to color this appropriately?

Now instead lets divide each square diagonally from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. What is the fewest amount of yellow colorings needed?
