How many Triangles are in the Image

98% of persons cant solve the above question on the number of triangles found in the photo.
The answer is obvious once you take a careful look. However as you can imagine, many persons wont break down the complex view into smaller chunks and solve mathematically.

Lets look at how this is done:

  • Break up the shape into segments
  • The easiest way to do this is to identify the base of where each triangle is and split by this. You will notice that the main triangle now has 3 sections: the top, middle and bottom

  • Look at the top triangle
  • Notice that the top, there is a main outer triangle, and you can get 5 more triangles from the inside. This makes 6 triangles at the top in total!

  • Use math to solve the rest
  • Since there are 3 segments like this, then 3 X 6 = 18. There are a total of 18 triangles that you can find in total.
