well one of the basics of triangles is that the sum of the 2 shorter sides must me greater than the longest side
so you can 3, 3, 5 3 + 3 > 5
but you can't have 3, 3, 9 as 3 + 3 is not greater than 9...
just keep working that way
you find the number of triangles you can make... its between 6 and 10
