From Sam Loyd, a puzzle-maker from a century ago:
Draw a 4 x 4 square.
Divide it into 16 individual boxes.
Next, draw a diagonal line from the middle of each side of the square to the middle of the adjoining side, forming a diamond.
And finally, draw a long diagonal line from each corner of the square to the opposite corner, forming an X.
How many triangles can you find in this figure?
