Being a puzzle solver requires more attention to detail than you would initially ascribe to something that seems to be a simple math problem.
Quora user Kumar Ankit proved that when he shared this puzzle entitled "how many triangles are in this picture?"
Your first instinct is to go to the large shape on the page and count all possible triangles inside, correct?
Martin Silvertant, a mathemetician and fellow Quora user, has taken that liberty for you. So if we count, the answer is 24. Right?
Incorrect. The title of the puzzle is: "How many triangles are in this picture?"
What you have guessed is the number of triangles inside the SHAPE.

And one cleverly concealed by altering the logic of what we are looking for.
We were asked, "how many triangles?" Not: "how many triangle shapes?"
The word "triangle," under that description, is technically also within the boundaries of the puzzle.
