Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d: what i mean below is referring to an obtuse triangle the reason is that an obtuse angle means an angle which is always greater than 90deg. refering to angle sum of triangle, any one of the other two angle must be smaller than 90deg. this implies that the side opposite to the obtuse angle is greater than the other two sides by "greater angle, greater side" (see Euclid's Elements)
