[edit] Hints

Hint One
    There really is no trick at work here. You just need to find all the triangles you can.

    Look carefully so you don't miss any triangles that are hard to spot.

Hint Two
    Several triangles can share a single side.

    To make matters even more confusing, you need to look at every side of the big triangle to find all the triangles. Make sure you don't accidentally count a single triangle twice during your search.

Hint Three
    First, go ahead and count the large triangle all by itself. Then, add one of the three lines that splits the big triangle into two. Now your total has grown to three triangles.

    Next, add one more line to your big triangle and you'll create three new triangles. There are three combinations of two lines possible.

    Good luck finding the rest.
