AC = 13

BC = sq rt. 34

CD = 3

**drwls**, Tuesday, March 4, 2008 at 12:57amYour example cannot make a triangle because the longest side (13) is longer than the sum of the other two sides (5.83 + 3 = 8.31).

There is a rule that says that if you are given any two sides of a triangle, A and b, the third side must be less than A + B and greater than |A - B|
