Q:
# Describe the possible lengths of the third side of the triangle given that the lengths of the other two sides are 2 feet and 40 inches.90 POINTS

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:The third side of any triangle must be between the difference and sum of the lengths of the other two sides.Given that the lengths of the other two sides are 2 feet and 40 inches,the difference = 40 inches - 2 feet = 40 - 2*12 = 40 - 24 = 16 inches; andthe sum = 40 inches + 2 feet = 40 + 2*12 = 40 + 24 = 64 inches.So the possible length is between 16 to 64 inches.
