yes the sum of 2 sides has to be more than the 3rd side
anonymous
  • anonymous
so there are three inequalities here, one for each side... can you list them?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait, you only need one of them.. can you write it out?

9+5>X X+5>9 9+X>5

  • anonymous
thats it... exactly
anonymous
  • anonymous
and I think that first one is the answer to this question
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats how im suppose to solve it? or those are the inequalities
anonymous
  • anonymous
9 + 5 > X but you might want to simplify it
anonymous
  • anonymous
to simplify it id have to solve for X rite
anonymous
  • anonymous
I would just say X < 14 so the third side must be less than 14 inches long

okay thxz!
