I think there is an error with the "K" triangle. It's meant to be the triangle with 11 total triangles, but I'm unable to come up with more than 10. I may be wrong, but just in case.

Hello, solver. We would like to look into this possible error, but it would help us greatly if you can tell us in which particular magazine (title and issue) this puzzle appeared. Thanks.

Hi cesage,

Are you able to take a picture and provide a link for those who don't have the magazine? For folks unfamiliar with this puzzle, here is an example of what Triangle Quote looks like from Penny Press, not Dell. (Is it the same type of puzzle?)

I went through my examples of Triangle Quotes and copied all the 11-totaling triangles here:

Sometimes triangles are reused. Is the one you mentioned in my picture? Amazing to me, but 3 of the 21 I copied were miscounted!! As far as I can tell, A through R do have 11 total. But S, T, and U don't! For those interested, try and find the 11 in each of A to R; then determine the number of triangles for S, T, and U. (Don't forget to count the main triangle, too.)

There is a completed puzzle pictured, so... Spoiler alert, but this is the triangle puzzle in question.
