P.S. For the record: When I suggested that you shift your focus by 10 degrees, I had not actually used a compass to measure it. 10 degrees is only an approximate measure...

And a postscript to my above postscript. I think that one must also shift their focus when counting the triangles as well.

Puzzle #4: Hopefully I didn't miss a whole big layer somewhere. Right now I'm counting 82 squares and 324 triangles ... The big number minus the small number would be 242 (the other way it would be -242, I wasn't sure which way was being asked for but I'll assume a positive number is what we want). Did I miss a whole bunch of shapes somewhere? My breakdown for triangles is:

41 pointing north
41 pointing south
41 pointing west
41 pointing east
40 pointing northwest
40 pointing northeast
40 pointing southwest
40 pointing southeast

each of which is comprised of multiple sizes, etc. Has anyone else tried this one yet?
