Counting triangles in a pentagram is an exercise that can really give you a feel for how shapes are related to each other. It’s also interesting because the number of triangles you find is different depending on which way around your starting and ending points are, so here I’ll show how many there are with both orientations. The five-pointed star has been used as a symbol for people and things connected to Earth (as opposed to those higher up in heaven), protection, or evil, from at least the time of ancient Greece–it was first mentioned by Plato when he described it on the shield of Agamemnon . It has since been adopted as one of several symbols representing various groups including Satanists , Wiccans, the five members of Iron Maiden and the Pentagrams. A pentagram can be drawn with two points (the vertices) connected by a straight line to make five triangles, one on top of each other as in the diagram above for instance . If you start at any vertex it will always add up to fifteen triangles – but if you draw from another point then there are fourteen or sixteen depending on how they’re counted! This is because a triangle edge shares three spaces between its neighbouring edges before crossing over into space not shared with any other edge. So this means that if we want only six such open spaces out of twelve available ones, all sharing an equal number of triangular sides, four must be shared together while two have only one shared edge between them.

When you start at any vertex then the number of triangles is always fifteen. If you start from another point, there are fourteen or sixteen depending on how they’re counted! This is because a triangle edge shares three spaces between its neighbouring edges before crossing over into space not shared with any other edge. So this means that if we want only six such open spaces out of twelve available ones, four must be shared together while two have one-sided sharing (one single side).Number of triangles in pentagram: up to 15 when counting starting from different points – but 14 and 16 possible as well depending on how counted; it depends how many triangular sides share an equal amount of space for each adjacent pair; also important to note that a triangle edge shares three spaces between its neighboring edges before crossing over into space not shared with any other edge

## The Pentagram: A Curious Counting Exercise

A pentagram is a polygon that looks like this and can be drawn by connecting five dots in the form of an “x”. The word “penta” means five, so we get the name. It’s important to note that this shape has been used for centuries as a religious symbol or icon. There are many different ways to count how many triangles are in it when counting starting from different points – but 14 and 16 possible as well depending on how counted; it depends how many triangular sides share an equal amount of space for each adjacent pair; also important to note that this shape can be drawn by connecting five points in the form of an “x”. We will start counting from a point and how many triangles are there. From point A, we see two triangles: triangle ABB & triangle ACD (see image). There is one more space between these triangles which does not have any adjacent sides sharing it. It is called “unshared” or empty space for short. If you count all three spaces as being shared equally with each other then there would be four triangular pieces- but if only counted the unshared spaces than they would equal six polygons; so 14 total possible ways to calculate these shapes when starting at point A on pentagram.

### When counted from Point B, we see one triangle: ABD. The two other spaces are shared by the three triangles around them- so there would be six polygons altogether; or 18 possible ways to calculate these shapes when starting at point B on pentagram.

There is no way of counting how many triangles exist in a pentagon because it has more than five points and not all of those points need to have adjacent sides joining together, unlike a pentagram which cannot exceed five points without having some polygonal sections that will share adjacent sides with another section (like A/B). If we take Point G as our count from this shape then we see four separate unshared spaces for certain- but since they could also intersect any number of the other available lines within its borders

The pentagram is a five-pointed star, and there are always six spaces in the middle of it where edges cross over each other. This means that no matter how you draw from any point on its perimeter to make triangles with two neighbouring points (the vertices), they will add up to sixteen if drawn in this way . If we start at a different vertex then there would be fourteen instead because an edge shares three spaces before crossing into space not shared by any other edges! So for twelve available spaces out of fifteen triangular sides pairs, four must share their space while only two have theirs shared by another pair. There’s one final twist: when drawing all these triangles using both methods the number inside the pentagram is always six.
