Third scale means the length of the missing side of the triangle
in a triangle, sum of any two sides is greater than the third side

sooo...yeah I am still confused. I don't want the answer directly but can u plz use the numbers given lolol
ok , so we already know that the biggest side is 12( because all the options given are also less than 12)
so the third side should be such that , when added to 4, gives a number bigger than 12
And 9 is the only measurement that meets that condition.
uh. u just gave the answer but yet my slow brain is still confused as to why thats the answer XDXD
the sum of any two sides should be bigger than the third side
if the third side is 6, 6+4=10 , which is not bigger than 12
which are not bigger than 12
only when you add 9+4=13 gives a number bigger than 12
