I think the answer is

2

because

there is always as many circles as yellow/purple edges. The circles are colored with the color most triangles have.

• Is this actually true? It only really seems to hold for the second image, and the fourth if white is considered a tie. The third doesn't even have a circle...

• It holds for all of them if you consider rot13(gur ahzore bs rqtrf funerq ol n lryybj naq n checyr gevnatyr). But I do agree it seems a bit too complicated to be a satisfying answer. Dec 22, 2023 at 17:18
• Ah, okay, that's not how I read your answer. I interpreted your words as meaning 'yellow vs purple edges [of the big triangle]', in which case we'd have (in order) 1P0Y, 0P2Y, 1P3Y, 2P2Y and 3P0Y. Whereas you meant rot13(obhaqnel rqtrf orgjrra n lryybj gevnatyr naq n checyr gevnatyr) - I get you now, thanks.
