H=36
I=45
J=55
K=66

R=171
S=190

Chloe and Georgia from Moorgate CP School, and Matt from St Andrew's School also calculated carefully.

Class 5 from Spring Grove Primary School in Hounslow told us:

These numbers are called triangle numbers because you would be able to arrange the number of blocks into a triangle formation. It would also work if they were counters as well.
