Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sum of two sides must greater than the 3rd one a+b >c b+c >a a+c> b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well there is a basic for triangles the sum of the shorter sides must be greater than the longest side... so if 9 is the longest and x is a short side you can say 5 + x > 9 if x is the longest side then 5 + 9 > x hope it helps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first option a = 3 b = 5 c = 9 so a +b > c 3+ 5 > 9 is it correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if you take 15, 5+9 < 15 so it doesnt work
