Q:
# A triangle has two sides of lengths 4 and 5. What value could the length of the third side be?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.Step-by-step explanation:We know that the sum of two sides on a triangle should ALWAYS be greater than the third side. Then we have:5-4 < x < 5 + 41 < x < 9Therefore, the lenght of the third side could be any number between 1 and 9. If the lenght of the third side is an integrer, then the lenght could be:2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.
