The Kite is in the form of a rhombus.

It can be much longer but I use this one:

**How many triangles can you find in it?**

I will explain here how to do it so if you want to try it yourself

you can jump to Riddle E – The Kite. It’s a pdf file. You can

download it, print it and work on it…

If you stayed here let’s **sort & count** the triangles:

There are only **4** triangles in the basic shapes.

The other shapes are not triangles, of course.

Let’s look at the triangles made of 2 basic shapes:

I’ve drawn here all the **4** triangles of this sort:

And now the triangles made of 3 basic shapes:

I’ve drawn here the **2** triangles of this sort:

What about triangles made of 4 basic shapes?

Here are the **3 **triangles of this sort:

And there are **2** triangles made of 5 basic shapes.

I’ve drawn both of them here:

There is **one** triangle made of 6 basic shapes.

This is this triangle:

There is **one** triangle made of 8 basic shapes.

This is that triangle:

And now we can sum all the numbers:

We get: **4+4+2+3+2+1+1=17** triangles in this kite.

And now what? Try another triangles-counting riddle in the **fun-pages.**..
