Triangle Inequality Theorem
• The sum of the length of any two sides of a
triangle is greater than the third side.
Y
• XY + YZ > XZ
• YZ + XZ > XY
• XZ + XY > YZ

Z
Using the Triangle Inequality
Theorem…
• Is it possible for 3, 7, and 8 to be the sides
of a triangle?
Using the Triangle Inequality
Theorem…
• What about 3, 6, and 10?
Inequalities Relating Sides and
Angles
• Theorem 4-10: If two sides of a triangle are
not congruent, then the larger angle lies
opposite the longer side.
Y
• Ex. If XZ > XY,
then mY > mZ
