help with InequalityThe sum of the lengths of any two sides is greater than the lenght of the third side. in triangle ABC, BC = 4 and AC = 8  AB. Write an inequality for AB. #3 20050810 18:04:40
Re: help with InequalityGanesh is right, but as BC=4, it can be continued further: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20050810 19:14:47
Re: help with InequalityTry disproving it and fail. Just try drawing a triangle with lengths of 2, 3 and 6. The 2 and 3 are too short and too far apart to be able to join up. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20050810 21:48:04
Re: help with InequalityLets take the length of sides Mathsy has given. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #7 20050810 22:06:08
Re: help with InequalityOoohh ... so you CAN have one side of a triangle longer than the other two, it just somehow slips into imaginary space ... "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20050811 10:35:14
