triangle inequalityTwo sides of an obtuse triangle are 16 and 21. How many possible lengths are there for the third side, if it is a positive integer? I see you have graph paper. You must be plotting something #2 20130529 10:39:38
Re: triangle inequalityIn a triangle,a side must be smaller than the sum of other two sides,so the third side will be smaller than 16+21=37,which means there are 36 possible lengths. There are 10 kinds of people in the world,people who understand binary and people who don't. #3 20130529 11:42:36
Re: triangle inequalityHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130529 12:18:12
Re: triangle inequalityyea, I used several equations I see you have graph paper. You must be plotting something #5 20130529 14:58:21
Re: triangle inequalityLengths 6 to 13 work for the first problem. There are 8 solutions.

Re: triangle inequalityI am getting 18 solutions for the first problem. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: triangle inequalityAh, yes, 27 to 36 also work. 18 solutions it is.

Re: triangle inequalityHi;
Not really, that can verified. What I do not get is why I am having so much trouble drawing it in geogebra. Did you have more luck there? In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: triangle inequalityCalculations are proving the triangle is feasible but until I can illustrate it, I have no faith in the answer... In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: triangle inequalityHe is really good at differential geometry. He is more physics oriented than I am too.
Any place where you are paying. I am not particular. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #19 20130531 00:40:16
Re: triangle inequalityI will probably post them in Computer math once I have a working geogebra solution to it.
Cmon, you are embarassing me. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #21 20130531 00:50:53
Re: triangle inequalityOh boy! I never could turn that down. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
