'

nice try..but not the one.

One triangle should not be completely inclusive into other (bigger) triangle.

Also, please name the triangles vertices.

Please name the vertices(points) of the triangle for easy view of your triangles.

e.g.

1. ABC

2. CBD

3. BDA

etc.

I count more than 5 triangles.

You can get a triangle at BJF and AEH as well.

Are we allowed more than 5 triangles?

BJF and AEH... I think includes other smaller traingles which are being counted too. Right?
