**MathMate**, Monday, July 18, 2011 at 10:39amUnfortunately the triangle does not exist.

Any properly formed triangle has to have any two of its sides greater than or equal to the third.

In this example, the sides 2 and 6 will never meet to form a triangle, since the base is 10 inches.

Mathematically, this can be expressed as:

a+b>c

b+c>a

c+a>b

All three conditions must be satisfied for the triangle to "exist".
