So wouldn't that mean that AB is the first smallest with 12 and BC is the second smallest with 8?

a, b, or c? which one seems wider/larger?

I think AC is the largest.

That doesn't really matter, rather the concept.... just "visually", can you tell me (in my picture) which angle is bigger?

So you can tell that the smaller sides would form the biggest angle. ALTERNATIVELY, the biggest angle [in a \(\triangle\)] is the angle that faces the largest side.

so you can tell me (hopefully - as easy as without having to draw) - which angle (formed by which sides) is the largest??
