    To find this answer out you want to find the opposite side of the longest angle. That's the "formula".

    Find the third angle first. Whichever angle is the biggest the side opposite to that will be the longest.

    m<A=60 and m<B=40. Therefore m<C = 180 - 60 - 40 = 80 m<C is the biggest angle. Therefore, the side opposite m<C will be the longest. The side opposite m<C is usually denoted by c. So c is the longest side of the triangle.

    angle A and C is the longest side

    Angle C = 80 > Angle A = 60 > Angle B = 40 Therefore, side c > side a > side b

    so u know an isoscels trianlge must ahve 2 sides that are congrunet. since u have a side that is 3 and another 7. the 3rd side must be either 3 or7
