Testing option A: 16 cm, side = 8 cm, side = 7 cm Is 16 < 8 + 7 No --> One no means that the 3 sides are not lengths of a triangle so option A is out because 16 is not less than 15. Is 8 < 16 + 7 Yes Is 7 < 16 + 8 Yes

Option C: Side = 17 cm, side = 12 cm, side = 7 cm 17 < 12 + 7 ? 12 < 17 + 7 ? 7 < 17 + 12 ? @geny55
