## Triangle designs

This puzzle involves 24 equilateral triangles with a different equation on each side. To ensure the puzzle is possible you will need to label the sides clockwise in the order of a, b and c. As these are equilateral triangles, the starting side (or 'side a') doesn't matter.

Triangle ID Side a Side b Side c
T01 $^4\sqrt256 = x + 4$ $5x = 100$ $\sqrt x = x$
T02 Blank $\sqrt49 + 10 = x$ ${3x \over 2} = 3^2$
T03 $4x = 8$ Blank $x^3 - 30 = -3$
T04 $3x = \sqrt81$ ${x \over 16} = {1 \over 2}$ ${x \over 0.5} = 44$
T05 $72 = 3x$ ${3x \over 7.5} = 6$ $5 \times 10 + 2 = 2x$
T06 $x = \sqrt4$ Blank $x^2 = \sqrt81$
T07 ${12x \over 2} = 60$ ${32 \over 4} = 2x$ Blank
T08 Blank $-x = x - 2$ $-11 + x = 9 - x$
T09 $3x = 27$ $10 + x = 25$ $x + 1 = 7 \times 3$
T10 $3x - 4x = -17$ $2x =4^2$ ${x \over 3} = ^3\sqrt27$
T11 ${30 \over x} = 10$ Blank $3x = 42$
T12 Blank $\sqrt81 - x = 2$ $7x - 6 =36$
T13 $2 - x = 1$ ${x \over 13} = 2$ $x = \sqrt25$
T14 $3x^2 = 3$ Blank $7x - 2x = 10$
T15 $4x = \sqrt16$ ${4 \over 2} = x$ $3^3 = x - 2$
T16 Blank $4x + 8 = 5x$ $3x + 4 = 25$
T17 $3x + 7 =10$ ${x \over 2} = 11$ $x - 13 = 4^2$
T18 $x = \sqrt16$ $x = ^3\sqrt512$ $32 = {x^2 \over 2}$
T19 ${25 \over x} = 5$ $2x + 6 = 24$ Blank
T20 $-x^2 + 72 = 36$ $\sqrt49 = x$ $5 - x = 2$
T21 Blank $3x = 18$ $\sqrt36 - x = 1$
T22 $x = 4^2 + 8$ $3x - 4x = -7$ $x + 8 = 14 - x$
T23 $x = \sqrt196$ $5x = x^2$ $x + 5 = {10 \over 2}$
T24 $3^2 = x + 1$ Blank $x = 9$

## Answer

The solution to this puzzle involves building a hexagon where touching sides share the same value of x. Click the below button to reveal the solution once you've finished or become completely stuck.

The final hexagon should have the triangles in the below arrangement. However, their orientation will still need to be calculated by you.

Top/First Row: T14, T06, T20, T12, T16

Second Row: T19, T13, T05, T22, T04, T18, T07

Third Row: T24, T10, T09, T01, T17, T15, T08

Bottom/Fourth Row: T02, T21, T23, T11, T03
