How Many Triangles Do You See ?
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 :
Total Single Triangles = 32
Total Double Triangles = 24
Total Four Triangles = 20
Total Eight Triangles = 8
Total Nine Triangles = 8
Total Sixteen Triangles = 4
So the Answer is :
32 + 24 + 20 + 8 + 8 + 4 = 96
There are 96 Triangles in the diagram.
How many of you got it right?
