7-4 Triangle Inequality Theorem
The sum of the measure of any two sides
of a triangle is greater than the third side.
C
AB + BC > AC
B
AB + AC > BC
BC + AC > AB
A
Ex. 1 Determine if the three numbers
can be measures of the sides of a
triangle. If no, explain.
a. 13, 28, 19 Yes, 13 + 19  28
13, 19, 28
b. 9, 4, 4
NO, 4 + 4  9
4, 4, 9
c. 9, 7, 2
2, 7, 9
NO, 7 + 2  9
Ex. 2 If two sides of a triangle have the following
measures, find the range of possible measures of
the third side.
a. 10, 7
b. 18 , 11

Side – Angle Inequalities
If one side of a triangle is longer than
another side, then the angle opposite the
longer side is larger than the angle
opposite the smaller side.
Ex. 1 Write the measurements of the angles in
order from least to greatest.
A
52
12
B
43
C
Step 1. Write the sides in order from least to greatest.
AB, BC, AC
Step 2. Write the angles opposite
those sides.
C, A, B
If one angle of a triangle is larger than another
angle, then the side opposite the larger angle is
longer than the side opposite the smaller angle.
Ex. 2 Write the measurements of the sides in order
from least to greatest.
Step 1. List the angles in order from least to greatest.
X, Z, Y
Step 2. Write the sides opposite those angles.
