Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the measurements to be good, two sides added together have to be greater than the other side. The only one that doesn't work here would be B, because 7+5=12 abd 12 isn't greater than 12. So B would not form a triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0B wouldn't because the two sides must be greater when added up then the biggest angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, the greatest angle measure has to be less than the other two added up. so C cant be it because 7+12>17 so it could form a triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Exactly, when the sum is greater, which in this case 19>17 it means that it can form a triangle. This question is asking which one cannot form a triangle.
