A similar question came in my test and I could not answer

hi shivusuja

I spent ages working around the triangle inequality and got nowhere.  Then I had a fresh idea.

AEC is a right angled triangle with AC as hypotenuse.  So

AE < AC

Similarly, in triangle CFB

CF < BC

And finally, in triangle ABD

BD < AB

Add those up and

AE + CF + BD < AC + BC + AB

Please Help Me Out

Sum Of The Altitudes Of Triangle Is Less Than He The Sum Of The Sides Of The Triangle.
(ae+cf+bd < Ab+bc+cd)

Proof
I Have Tried With
Sum Of The Two Sides Is Greater Than The Third Side
Abc As Sides Of The Triangle And Ae. Bd And Cf As The Altitude.
I Got

Ae+ec>ac      Bd+dc>bc   Cf+af>ac
Ae+be>ab      Bd+ad>ab   Cf+fb>bc

Adding All I Got 2ae+2bd+2cf>ab+bc+ca
