Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5let's see, we have 1 huge triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5the no of smallest triangle is 9+7+5+3+1 = 26

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5a little bigger triangle .. we have 13, so total is 40 until now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5no .. but quite close

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5can you explain your approach?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.59+7+5+3+1 = 26 .. from this i was able to deduce 46

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nos.of small triangles=25 not 26!!@experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5still i cannot come up with general formula ...!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5lol ... quite a matching no.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no.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!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5no.of triangles with 2 rows of small triangles=10 ...it think this should be 13, aren't we missing inverted triangles?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are no inverted ones wid 3 or 4 rows so it has to be 48...i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@experimentX u der?if u are happy and satisfied wid answer close the question....

experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5i guess 48 is the right answer ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5still i was looking some sorts of permutations and combinations to this get this answer ... anyway thanks to all who tried.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0floor(n(n+2)(2n+1)/8) where n is the number of triangles on a side in your specific case, n=5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually, I'm seeing more problems with the solution here isn't there much more going on that we are ignoring?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@philips13 Gave the right answer. \[\huge \lfloor \normalsize \frac{ (n(n+2)(2n+1)}8 \huge \rfloor \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, whatever... :P I'm not sure I understand some of the notation on the link you gave me, but I'm sure I'll get it after hacking away at it for a while. Thanks :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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
