Goutham took random measurements of sides i.e. AB = 3 cm, BC = 5 cm, and AC = 8.5 cm and started constructing a triangle ABC. Which of the following statement is correct?
For constructing a triangle, the sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side. But here, AB (3 cm) + BC (5 cm) = 8 cm; is less than AC(8.5 cm)
So, Goutham can't construct a triangle using sides AB = 3 cm, BC = 5 cm, and AC = 8.5 cm.
