Best Answer

You can make 5 triangles out of 9 toothpicks.

With 6 toothpicks, make a large triangle with 2 toothpicks for each side. Now, take individual toothpicks, and make a smaller triangle inside the larger one by joining the midpoints of the sides of the previous triangle. (The vertices of the smaller triangle are the midpoints of the sides of the larger one).

How many triangles can be made from five points?

The geometric shape formed by connecting the perimeter of five points is a pentagon. Its basic construction is that of three triangles with one triangle in the middle sharing two of its sides with a base line of the other two triangles. The maximum number of triangles that can be created, if you count only those triangles that are formed by line segments between each of the five points, are ten (10).
