The answer is One Triangle

Scale 1 shows that two triangles equal one circle, so six triangles equal three circles.

Since Scale 2 shows that three circles equal three squares, six triangles equal three squares.

Scale 3 shows that one square equals four diamonds; two triangles equal four diamonds.

One triangle then, equals two diamonds, and would balance scale 4.
