# Count the Number of Triangles in the Given Figure Formula

Counting of Triangles in the Figure
Dear Students, in this post we are sharing Shortcuts to Count Number of Triangles in the given geometrical figure. Its very important topic of non-verbal reasoning subject. Mostly 1 or 2 questions always ask in the SSC(CGL, CHSL, MTS, CPO & Others), Railway(RRB NTPC, RPF, Group D, ALP, TC & Others) and other government examinations. Many candidates confused to count Number of Triangles. After reading this post, they must will count the correct number of triangles, we hope!.

Therefore,
Number of triangles=[x*y(x+1)]/2
=[4*3(4+1)]/2
=[12(5)]/2
=60/2
=30

Q11.How Many Triangles are there in the Given Figure?
Ans & Solution-
[Shortcut-Count the number of blocks made by vertical line(x) and number of blocks made by horizontal line(y) and apply the formula given below to know total number of triangles in this type of figures]
