# How many Happy triangles?

Level pending

How many distinct equilateral triangles can we count in the diagram below such that

1. every vertex of the triangle is a vertex on the diagram, and
2. the triangle is oriented in the same direction as triangle $$ABC?$$

Bonus and Details:

• What's the general formula for the corresponding question with the diagram having $$n$$ rows in the triangular grid?
• This is not an original question from me.
