Show whether it is possible to form triangles with these lengths.

Question 19.
6 in., 8 in., 12 in.
Yes
Explanation:
6+ 8 > 12
6 + 12 > 8
12 + 8 > 6
sum of two sides should be greater than other side. so its possible to form triangle.

Question 20.
9 in., 13 in., 3 in.
No
Explanation:
9 + 13 > 3
13  + 3  > 9
9  + 3 <   13 – sum of two sides should be greater than other side. so not possible to form triangle.

Question 21.
2 cm, 4 cm, 7 cm
No
Explanation:
2 + 4 < 7
– sum of two sides should be greater than other side. so not possible to form triangle.

The lengths of two sides of each triangle are given. Name a possible length for the third side. The lengths are in whole centimeters or whole inches.
