Chess board problem



what is maximum no. of kings which can be placed on a chessboard so
that no 2 of them put each other in check?
[provided all kings are of one color and check rule is applicable to
same color kings]

Have you tried it with 8 queens instead?

I agree, the number is 16. They have to be 1 apart and if you start of one corner, you can place another 4 in either direction (vertical and horizontal) on the 8x8 chessboard. And 4 times 4 is 16.
