# How Many Triangles Do You See ?

Hello friends,

Here’s a fun challenge for you. How many triangles can you see (or count) in the diagram above?

If you intend to count them one by one, you will need some form of concentration – else you might lose count!

Here’s one of the method to count it :

## How To Count The Triangles In The Diagram Systematically

First, lets label every corner with an Alphabet :

Next, group the triangles from small to large triangles (or by sub triangles)

Example of a group of small triangle will be AFG, BCG, etc

Example of a group of triangles formed by 2 smaller triangles, ie. AGK, CGM

The ones that are commonly missed, are these Triangles formed by 9 smaller triangles, ie. APS and especially GVY

So, these are the Triangle Groups :
