If a triangle has two short sides are three and four inches how many inches is the long side?

I need help with the length of a triangle.


Answer by  minisudhakaran (77)

The sum of two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side. So the sum of 3 and 4 is 7. The long side is less than 7.

The long side is five inches. The rule for right angle triangle is Asquared ( short side )+ B squared (other short side) = C squared ( long side ) 3 squared = 9, 4 squared = 16 for a sum of 25. The square root of 25 = 5
