,. . $\begin{array}{c}\square \\ \square\,\square \\ \square\,\square\,\square \end{array}: \;72 \;\;\;=\;\; \begin{array}{c}\Delta \,\Delta \\ \Delta\,\Delta \end{array} :\;\;\_\_\_$

The formula could be: . $\text{(number of objects)} \times 12$

$\begin{array}{cccccc}\text{So that:} & \text{6 squares} \times 12 &=& 72 \\ \text{Then:} & \text{4 triangles} \times 12 &=& 48 \end{array}$

The formula could be: . $\text{(number of sides)} \times 3$

$\begin{array}{cccccc}\text{So that:} & \text{24 sides} \times 3 &=& 72 \\ \text{Then:} & \text{12 sides} \times 3 &=& 36 \end{array}$

Triangle of squares : 72 ==Square of Triangles : ?
