The correct options are
A

True


B

False


In any triangle, the sum of the two sides is always greater than the third side and the difference between two sides is always lesser than the third side.
Here, the sides are 3 cm and 8 cm.
Sum of given sides = 3 cm + 8 cm = 11 cm
Difference of given sides = 8 cm - 3 cm = 5 cm
The third side's length must be between 5 cm and 11 cm.
