This is the correct answer. It can not be disputed; it is completely true.
There are not sixteen.
There are not forty.
There are not forty two. Douglas Adams did not invent this.
There are not forty four.
There are most definitely not nine thousand and forty two.

There are infinity.
Think outside the box; I can in fact see infinity, there are an infinite amount of shapes if you zoom in far enough. A set of three atoms, a triangle of quarks, and the infinite number of triangles making up the quarks.
Yes I know, techically they're photons, not quarks, but i can't be bothered to delete that.
I shall now conclude by saying schnurble.

Schnurble.

@blueprince,
Of course, within limited confines even all the atoms, photons and quarks there would inevitably be a finite number in which you can no longer conceive of any more triangles. Though the number may be higher than our tiny brains can comprehend.

@NickFun,
Nope, infinitely smaller than the size of quark... It's like saying how many lines can you draw on the head of a pin? Depends how far you zoom in.

There is only one triangle. The rest are sub-triangles.

Yes, we really needed three of this message.
Does that make it 156?

@NickFun,
Just for the sake of amusement, I will hint and direct people towards the right path. Looking at the solution link (and even the illustration), there is a thick green outline and a triangle inside. Taking that into account, one triangle in the answer accounts actually for 3 triangles (the thick green line alone, the yellow triangle alone without the thick green line, and the whole triangle which the answer uses). So, there are at least 132 legitimate triangles. Cheers mates.

EUREKA !!! Considering the question is "how many triangles can you find...?" and not "how many triangles are there...?", then all answers are right. I can only find, for example, 4 triangles even though there are many more. There is no wrong answer :p Thank you, thank you very much
