How Many Triangles Do You See?

There are thousands upon thousands of different math puzzles on the Internet. Some of them people solve in a couple of seconds, others — in an hour or two. Sometimes, though, heated debates open and spread around the web. We’ve just found one.

A Twitter user made a post on his page, commenting on how fiercely people argue about the solution to a simple problem. He was genuinely surprised by the amount of controversy surrounding it.

The task is as follows: you need to say how many triangles you see in the picture. And that’s all. Seems simple, right? But different people got different answers: some counted five, and some twenty-five. Here is the task itself.

After that, the user just courted controversy and published the most amusing answers on his page. Soon, however, someone not only correctly solved the task but also explained how to do it.

For those of you who felt the task was too easy, here’s a more difficult one. How many triangles do you see?

Due to copyright, we cannot post the answer to it, but you can check it out yourself via this link.

In conclusion, we’d like to say that it’s absolutely worth giving your brain a little workout now and then. By solving such simple tasks, you are sure to keep it in top shape. Did you get the right answer? Please tell us in the comments.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30
foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she
has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but
I had to share it with someone!

Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

Would you advise starting with a free platform
like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!

Wow, awesome weblog format! How lengthy have you been blogging for?

the content material!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never

I have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, but I by
no means discovered any interesting article like yours.

It is lovely price enough for me. In my view,
if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as
you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say…
I hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

I am no longer certain where you’re getting your information, but great topic.

Thank you for wonderful info I was looking for this information for my mission.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
to tell someone!
