The design tells us that some triangles are repeated Hand draw the sun and rays 120 Mountain tip triangle is the same shape triangle as the whole mountain 56 40 60 37.5 41º 6 48 30 53º 60 40 This corner also 90 60 The two mountain triangles are the same shape, but rescaled/flipped The designer made a note saying that the two mountain triangles are the same but rescaled, or different sizes.
