    Cool [SOLVED] Geometry Help - Triangle Sides

    Hi!

    I have a Geometry worksheet I need to get done for tomorrow. It's a really easy thing, I guess...but I'm a bit stuck.

    The lengths of two sides of a triangle are 4yd and 8yd. Which of the following CANNOT be the length of the third side?

    A. 3yd
    B. 5yd
    C. 8yd
    D. 9yd

    I forgot if the two sides of a triangle had to be greater than or less than the third side.

    Thanks:d
