Exploring The Triangle Inequality
- Braxton Carrigan
If a = 5 and b = 8, what are the values of c that will produce a triangle?
If a = 5, what can you say about the possible values of b and c that will produce a triangle?
Make a conjecture about what the relationship of the side lengths of a triangle. What lengths are possible? What lengths don't produce a triangle? Are the any formulas or other truths you think are always true?
