Luckily for this forum, you are not typical, let alone a typical mathematician.

Typical anything bores me to tears. I will have to replace that drawing but I am still having some difficulties uploading an image easily.

Will you please fire up mathematica and count it? I guess computer vision libraries can do it very fast

Hi;

I have no idea how to do that with mathematica or any other program. Do you have any ideas?

I suppose there are a total of 500?

Hi Agnishom

I did do it by hand, so there may be slight variations.
