Find the number of triangles in the given figure.
12 B] 18 C] 22 D] 26
The simplest triangles are AHB, GHI, BJC, GFE, GIE, IJE, CEJ and CDE i.e. 8 in number.
The triangles composed of two components each are HEG, BEC, HBE, JGE and ICE i.e. 5 in number.
The triangles composed of three components each are FHE, GCE and BED i.e. 3 in number.
There is only one triangle i.e. AGC composed of four components.
There is only one triangle i.e. AFD composed of nine components.
So, total triangles = 8 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 18
