Oh, sorry. The problem is:

Three towns are arranged in the shape of a triangle. The distance from Stockton to Overly is 10 miles and the distance from Overly to Shea is 8 miles. Maria drives from Stockton to Overly to Shea and back to Stockton. Which of the following statements best describes her trip?

The answers are:
She drove 19 miles.     
She drove 36 miles.
She drove less than 36 miles.    
She drove more than 36 miles.

Thanks for answering.

I just answered this question but was unable to come up with some kind of formula to tell the user that some combinations of a triangle is impossible. Is there any kind of formula to tell if a combination of a triangle is impossible?
