A. b^2 + c^2 < a^2
B. a^2 + b^2 < c^2
C. b^2 + c^2 > a^2
D. a^2 + c^2 < b^2

I am doubting myself... but I think I will go with A unless someone says otherwise. Help would be much appreciated!
Well, it depends if you are looking at angles or side lengths
I think that because we know that the angel is obtuse, we are looking at the side lengths?
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
If 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
Oh ok! |dw:1434933309907:dw|
So from what you have told me make it choice A?
*longest side length
If 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 :)
Ok thank you! :) I'll tell you what the answer is when I hit submit very soon
