Can someone please help me with this problem?
The length of two sides of a triangle are 4 cm & 6 cm. Between what two measures should the length of the third side fall?
Similarly, you won't be able to construct a triangle when the third side length is 10.
So it's 2 < x < 10.
Thanks mate for your response but what I would like to know is how did you come to the conclusion 2 < x < 10. Is there any formula for it or did you first try 2, then 3, then 4 so & so forth till 10 (or may be more). Did you do it by the trial & error method?
Thanks once again,
I did not try random numbers. My explanation in parentheses was to explain how I got there, because this is an intuitive inequality. The numbers are obtained as follows: 6-4 = 2. 6+4 = 10.
