    let's see, we have 1 huge triangle

    the no of smallest triangle is 9+7+5+3+1 = 26

    a little bigger triangle .. we have 13, so total is 40 until now

    9+7+5+3+1 = 26 .. from this i was able to deduce 46

    no.of small triangles=25 no.of triangles with 2 rows of small triangles=10 no.of triangles with 3 rows of small triangles=6 no.of triangles with 4 rows of small triangles=3 1 big full triangle so, 25+10+6+3+1 =45!!

    no.of triangles with 2 rows of small triangles=10 ...it think this should be 13, aren't we missing inverted triangles?

    there are no inverted ones wid 3 or 4 rows so it has to be 48...i think

    floor(n(n+2)(2n+1)/8) where n is the number of triangles on a side in your specific case, n=5

    if this problem is only about the dark triangles it is kind of boring... isn't it about using the inverted ones as well as callisto suggested?

    actually, I'm seeing more problems with the solution here isn't there much more going on that we are ignoring?

    I was thinking why i couldn't get the answer 48 when i did the calculation. But then from the website, it says that number of triangle = n*(n+2)*(2n+1)/8 for n even = (n*(n+2)*(2n+1) - 1)/8 for n odd So, I got 48 finally... BTW, it's experimentX who first suggested that we were missing the inverted triangles
