The figure below shows a partially completed construction of an acute scalene triangle. Points P and Q represent two vertices of the triangle.
Where should the point for the third vertex lie?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0between Q and L and on the arc between Q and M and on the arc between O and L and beyond the arc between O and M and beyond the arc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm, ok so scaline means no equal sides, no equal angles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1acute means all angles are less than 90 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if it's between Q and L on the arc, then the angle made by the center vertex will be way over 90 degrees, so it can't be that one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think if it's between O and L and beyond the arc (namely, beyond the arc but well before P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'm confused . . . ? so which one would it be ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the third choice I think  it's the only one that allows all of the angles to be small once you connect the vertices (less than 90 degrees)
