Triangle Inequality Theorem
Triangle Inequality Theorem
The sum of the two shorter sides of any triangle must be greater than the
third side.
Example:
3+5>7
8 >7
Yes!
Practice
Decide if it is possible to construct a
triangle having the given side lengths.
If not, explain.
13mm, 25mm, 14mm
9in, 17in, 8in
13 + 14 > 25
27 > 25
Yes!
8 + 9 > 17
17 > 17
No!
Sides & Angles
The longest side of a triangle is
always across from the largest
angle. The shortest sides of a
triangle is always across from the
smallest angle.
