Triangles in Triangles in Triangles...

What is the largest natural number \(N \) such that we can NOT subdivide an equilateral triangle into \(N\), not necessarily congruent, equilateral triangles?

Examples:

  • We CAN subdivide an equilateral triangle into 4 equilateral triangles like in the image above.
    • But we can NOT subdivide an equilateral triangle into 2 (possibly different) equilateral triangles.
