### Best Answer Mitch Alan says

There are 44 triangles in the diagram and all of them are right triangles.

You were first, nice work.

### paxwill says

16 that consist of one base unit

16 that consist of two base units

8 that consist of four base units

4 that consist of eight base units

16+16+8+4 = 44 total triangles

(Glad you didn't ask us to count the number of pentagons.)

### hrymel says

I see 36 triangles, but I see that the right answer is most likely 44. Where are the other 8?

See saitam's and paxwill's explanations of how to find all 44 triangles.

### saitam says

I found 44

8 triangles in each small square. (4 small squares make it 32 triangles)

4, when you cut the big square in half.

4 when you get together half of two small squares.

4 using the center axis and half the small squares.

That's right.
