I don't fully understand what they are asking here? Is this an engineering problem?

Imagine forces in the x-direction (i.e. lateral force). Which would be able to support this better? |dw:1436916709996:dw|

For the rectangular structure, any lateral support is provided by the joints. In the triangular structure, this support is provided by the joints but also by the diagonal segments. I have drawn arrow to show some of the vector forces.

How do you know if something has lateral support or not?
ybarrap
  • ybarrap
Resolve forces into the x and y direction. These forces need to be transmitted from the base to the upper supports. No x-forces can be supported by the segments in the rectangular structure.

So what property would that carry?
ybarrap
  • ybarrap
I'm not sure what properties you are learning. Geometrically, a triangle is is a more \(stable\) structure.
