Well, these puzzles are quite simple.
You just need to count how many triangles are there.
Note: don't peek the answers before trying to solve the puzzle on your own  :)

Here they are:

  • [spoiler=Type 1]

    [spoiler=The answer]There are 27 triangles here. The breakdown:

    • X1 triangles: 16

    • X4 triangles: 7

    • X9 triangles: 3

    • X16 triangles: 1



    Math solution: T(n) = floor(n * (n + 2) * (2n + 1) / 8)
    n = 4
    T(4) = floor(4 * (4 + 2) * (2*4 + 1) / 8) = 27[/spoiler][/spoiler]

  • [spoiler=Type 2]

    [spoiler=The answer]There are 48 triangles here.

    Math solution: T(n) = floor(n * (n + 2) * (2n + 1) / 8)
    n = 5
    T(5) = floor(5 * (5 + 2) * (2*5 + 1) / 8) = 48[/spoiler][/spoiler]

  • [spoiler=Type 3]

    [spoiler=The answer]There are 44 triangles here. The breakdown:

    • X1 triangles: 16

    • X2 triangles: 16

    • X4 triangles: 8

    • X8 triangles: 4

    [/spoiler][/spoiler]

  • [spoiler=Type 4]

    [spoiler=The answer]There are 64 triangles here. [spoiler=The breakdown:][/spoiler][/spoiler][/spoiler]

  • [spoiler=Type 5]
