Find the number of triangles in the given figure.

8
10
12
14
Explanation:

The figure may be labelled as shown.

The simplest triangles are AHG, AIG, AIB, JFE, CJE and CED i.e. 6 in number.

The triangles composed of two components each are ABG, CFE, ACJ and EGI i.e. 4 in number.

The triangles composed of three components each are ACE, AGE and CFD i.e. 3 in number.

There is only one triangle i.e. AHE composed of four components.

Therefore, There are 6 + 4 + 3 + 1 = 14 triangles in the given figure.

Is there any short cut method to solve this type of problem??

What is the meanings of components here?

The meaning of the component here is a triangle has made with how much points(a,b,c,d,e... j) in a straight line i.e AHE has made with 4 points in a straight line!

Is there any shortcut or trick to solve above question because we have to solve these question in 1 minutes in our entrance exam and its seems very difficult?
(1)

No. of total nodes + 2(no. of inner nodes)
Here,
Total no. of nodes=10
No. of inner nodes(i and j)=2
10+2(2)=14

Thanks Priyanka.

Thanks alot priyanka g.

What is node, and what are inner and outer nodes ?

@Priyanka: Can we apply this for similar type of questions ?

@priyanka:: iska formula nahi hota.

dont try to do..

counting only way to finding. understood girl!!!
