Find the number of triangles in the given figure.

Answer: Option

Explanation:

The figure may be labelled as shown.

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.

Thus, there are 8 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 1 = 18 triangles in the given figure.

How this way is possible?

No of nodes + 2 * No of inner nodes.

Ca anyone explain it?

The figure shows a triangle with many lines. If the number of internal lines from vertex E=4, and the number of internal lines parallel to base is 2, then [4 X 2 X (2+1)]/2 = 12 and then add the rest small triangle at side and the main large triangle, you will get 18.
