## dedication: applauded

## 4 squares and 13 triangles

If this isn't the correct answer, it's a trick question.

A square needs to have four equal sides. There is only 4 of those.

There's more squares but they are dived by diagonal lines, so aren't fucking squares. If they want toy to count those, then that isn't a square. So it's bollocks.

The other shapes aren't square, they're rectangle or they've odd four sides shapes.

If they want you to count

## Wait, so it seems, on reading more of the thread

you do have to count stuff divided up other lines.

Stupid, pointless shit.

## I definitely think it's a fuck up.

Should be this:

but that makes more triangles

## Actually, that's still only 13 squares

## there is 15 rectangles

not squares
