I was currently working on problems that involve triangles. I am really confused on how to solve these. Teacher did not give sufficient information on how I could go about to solve this problem.
Here is an example of a problem.=
Each set of numbers below represents the lengths of three line segments.
Which set represent line segments that could be connected to form a triangle?
Then I am given a set of numbers.
Here is an example=
(3, 5, 7)=How would I know whether I connect them to form a triangle?
(3, 4, 8)=How would I know whether I connect them to form a triangle?
(1, 4, 6)=??-
(1, 3, 5)=??-
(5, 6, 11)=??-
(1, 10, 20)=??-
I do not want the answer. I just need some hints in the right direction on how to solve a problem of this kind. You may use this one as an example.
How would I go about to solve this kind of question? I have more than one question on these to answer.
Thanks for all the potential help.
