We study the transmission probability of Dirac fermions in graphene scattered by a triangular

double barrier potential in the presence of an external magnetic field. Our system made of two

triangular potential barrier regions separated by a well region characterized by an energy gap

Gp . Solving our Dirac-like equation and matching the solutions at the boundaries we express our

transmission and reflection coefficients in terms of transfer matrix. We show in particular that the

transmission exhibits oscillation resonances that are manifestation of the Klein tunneling effect.
