Question: 68


How many total triangles (of any size) are in this drawing?

A. 9
B. 10
C. 11
D. 12
E. 13

Correct Answer: E


E. Seeing that the drawing contains nine little triangles is fairly easy. Adding the big triangle gives you ten, but you can't forget to count the three "mama bear" triangles, which you can see here:

Adding in these three triangles gives you 13 total.
