The correct answer is 76. There are 9 points in the grid. You can pick any 3 out of these 9 points in 9*8*7/(3*2*1) = 84 ways. However, 3 will form horizontal lines in the grid, 3 will form vertical lines in the grid, and 2 will form diagonal lines in the grid. None of these 8 triplets will form triangles, but all the rest will. So the answer is 84-8=76.

5x5=25 squared 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36 The only way to fit them in would be to fold them XD

draw a line from corner to corner and you have identical triangles!

you can make 76 different triangles on a 3x3 grid

5!=5*4*3*2*1

If its a 4 by 5 grid, there are 20 squares because 4 times 5 =20 20 by 2 is 40 so there are 40 triangles because there are 2 triangles that fit into each square. Hope this helps!

You really should do your own homework - this is a question designed to make you analyse number patterns and devise a method to predict the answer that can be applied to grids of differing size. If we start with a square cut into a 3x3 grid, we can count the nine single (1x1) squares in the grid, the one 3x3 square, and then four 2x2* squares, making a total of 14. Try it out, then work your way up to 6x6 (a 36 square grid) by way of 4x4 and 5x5, looking to see how the grid's dimensions correlate to the number of varying-sized squares that can be counted. As a tip- in a 6x6 grid, you will have one 6x6 square, thirty-six 1x1 squares, and how many 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5 squares? *The squares can overlap, obviously.
