    Re: Triangles

    Took me ages to find 44 different ones, I kept counting some twice, but I can't see any more.

    Re: Triangles

    I keep getting 48...

    18 - individual 1 component triangles.
    12 - 2 component triangles on the perimeter.
    6 - 3 component triangles on the perimeter.
    6 - 4 piece small equilateral triangles.
    6 - 4 piece large equilateral triangles.

    Am I mistaken??

    Re: Triangles

    Are you sure about the last category? I would say that there are 2 large equilateral triangles (consisting of 9 pieces each.)

    Re: Triangles

    I'd agree with that Hans... 2 - 9 piece equilaterals.
