There are nine unit triangles in the three rows of this triangle. If you add three more rows to the bottom of this triangle so that each row has 2 more unit triangles than the previous row, how many unit triangles will there be? Jun 22, 2019

I hate waiting for moderation... But try counting:

1: 1

2:3

3:5

4:7

5:9

6:11

ALL RIGHT! we have all the rows, just do 7+9+11

16+11

25

25 MORE TRIANGLES

This will  be the sum of this series :   1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11   =

[ First Term + Last  Term ] * [ Number of Terms]  / 2

[ 1 + 11]  * 6 / 2  =

12 * 6   / 2  =

72  / 2  =

36  unit triangles   Jun 22, 2019
