What’s the answer

There are 14 triangles. The obvious 9 triangles. The triangle which encases all the triangles, which counts for 1. The top 4 triangles which counts as 1. The 4 left bottom triangles which count for 1. The bottom 4 right triangles which count for 1. And the word “triangles” in the sentence which counts for 1. That equals 14

Thanks for taking the time to answer! Will post an. Answer soon.

Nice try John…but the word “triangles” is NOT a TRIANGLE, its a word…and a PLURAL word at that. FAIL.

I agree with John, 14 is the correct answer.

There are 13 total triangles: the whole triangle (1), each small one (9), and the 3 triangles that contain 4 small triangles.

there are 10 triangles 1 large and 9 inside

there are 10 triangles 1 large triangle and 9 inside that, 1 at the top, 3 in the middle and 5 at the bottom.
