Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, it depends if you are looking at angles or side lengths

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think that because we know that the angel is obtuse, we are looking at the side lengths?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you are talking about side lengths, then you should know that the sum of the legs of a triangle are always greater than the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If I remember my geometry correctly, two legs are greater than the hypotenuse. However, I can't remember if that concept applies to all the lengths. So, with the little knowledge I gave you, if it even helped, I wish you luck :)
