## 'Mrs Trimmer's String' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

How many children are needed for one triangle? How many children
would be needed to make two triangles then?

So if there are twenty-four children, how many triangles can they
make at the same time?

You could try drawing the triangles and numbering the corners to
show the children.
