I'm not fully sure of what is the base and the height of the triangle, but if I guess correctly, you may peek at "?image", the last paragraph of the "Details:" section, and also in the "Examples:" section, where it says "Need to transpose and flip matrix horizontally.". Maybe you'll find some explanations or ideas in there.

Another idea is to exchange "x, y" in the "outer" call, and maybe also use "rev()" on one of them.
