Numbers, I will dare give an answer.
Several answers are possible and correct to this question. Thus the true challenge of it is to tolerate ambiguity, which for some is much harder to bear than math.

Handy and WIP got the right answer.

Show your work, please.

Here's mine.
11 x 11 = 4 (1+1) x (1+1) = 2 x 2 = 4
22 x 22 = 16 (2+2) x (2+2) = 4 x 4 = 16
33 x 33 = 36 (3+3) x (3+3) = 6 x 6 = 36
but 18 is correct too.

Solve if u r a genius ! 11 x 11 = 4 ; 22 x 22 = 16; 33 x 33 = ???
11 x 11 = 121 = 1 + 2 +1 = 4
22 x 22 = 484 = 4 + 8 + 4 = 16
33 x 33 = 1089 = 1 + 0 + 8 + 9 = 18

... a large portion of my obnoxious and repetitive post seems to be missing. You know anything about that?
You missed Classic's full reply?

It was a full page of tiny print.

Pardon me, but I like my eggs green with my spam.

Question:
11x11 = 4
22x22 = 16
33x33 = ?

Solution:
11x11 = 121
22x22 = 484
33x33 = 1089

x=121; y=4
x=484; y=16
x=1089; y=?

Equations:
A121+B=4
A484+B=16

B = 4-A121 = 16-A484

A484-A121 = 16-4
A(363) = 12
A = 4/121
B = 4-A121 = 4-(4/121)121 = 0

Hence,
A*1089 + B = ?
(4/121)*1089 + 0 = 4*9 = 36

Answer: 36

I said 42 at first, but what WIP said made more sense to me so I changed my answer to 36. I suppose I copied off his paper, lol.

He said:

11 x 11 = 4 (1+1) x (1+1) = 2 x 2 = 4
22 x 22 = 16 (2+2) x (2+2) = 4 x 4 = 16
33 x 33 = 36 (3+3) x (3+3) = 6 x 6 = 36

Classik, please give us the answer. This has certainly gone on long enough.
That's called cheating!:bigfrown Disqualified? Justified?:biggrin

I think everyone who is coming up with 36 is putting too much conjecture into the equation. The only answer that makes sense is 18, as many of us have said. We've performed the function as presented in the equation, then adding up the individual numbers in the answer. Admittedly, that's a conjecture as well, but since we have the answers for the first two functions given, our method is the only way to come up with an answer with a minimal amount of conjecture or extrapolation the information presented allows.
