So, we all have seen this tricky IQ math question regarding on how many triangles can you find in this picture. There are many answers over there discussed by math experts, but what is the exact answer? Was it too hard for you to count the number of triangle in the diagram below? The real answer is: 13. Come and see why?

Let’s see how we count the possible number of triangles correctly (by explanation).

First, count just the triangles visible inside the triangle, we have found **9 triangles**.
