how about 45? imagine you are looking down at the top of a pyramid, and the center of the picture is the top of the point.

If we think of this mathematically...

Look at the largest square.
First lets break it up into halves to get 2 main triangles.
We can rotate these triangles so there are actually 4 possible halfves
depending on which 2 positions we choose.

Even further we can break it up into 4ths
Which will produce 4 triangles, one in each of the possible positions.

So from the largest square we have a total so far of 8 triangles

Now look at one of the smaller squares
The same applies rules apply.
If we break it up into halves, we have 4 possible triangles
If we break it up into fourths we have 4 possible triangles.

So for each smaller square we have 8 triangles.
Since there are 4 smaller squares 4*8 = 32 Triangles.

This puts our total at 40, which should be all possible triangles.

@mikegonzalez2k,
A correction...
It is 44.

Here is the corrected explanation of all 44 triangles...
If we think of this mathematically...

Look at the largest square.
First lets break it up into halves to get 2 main triangles.
We can rotate these triangles so there are actually 4 possible halfves
depending on which 2 positions we choose.

Even further we can break it up into 4ths
Which will produce 4 triangles, one in each of the possible positions.

So from the largest square we have a total so far of 8 triangles

Now look at one of the smaller squares
The same applies rules apply.
If we break it up into halves, we have 4 possible triangles
If we break it up into fourths we have 4 possible triangles.

So for each smaller square we have 8 triangles.
Since there are 4 smaller squares 4*8 = 32 Triangles.

This puts our total at 40.

Now look at the diamond inside the largest square.
This is just another large square.
The fourths we have already accounted for in the smaller squares.
But the halves are new.

Thus we add the last 4 halves and our grand total is 44.

I read through all these expecting to find a final answer from the person who posted this in the first place. As far as I can see that doesn't happen. Anyway, I found the definitive answer here: http://www.transum.org/Software/SW/Starter_of_the_day/starter_January23.ASP - The correct answer is 44 as you will see if you scroll to the bottom of the link.
