Q:
# Is it possible for a triangle to have sides with the given lengths: 20 m, 22 m, and 24 m? A. Yes; the sum of each pair is greater than the third. B. No; 202 + 222 > 242. C. No; 22 + 24 > 20. D. Yes; the sum of each pair is less than the third.

Accepted Solution

A:

The correct answer is A) yes, the sum of each pair is greater than the third.

The triangle inequality theorem states that the sum of any two sides of a triangle is longer than the third side. This is true for these numbers, so this does form a triangle.
