is it possible to draw a triangle whose sides measure 5 inches, 9 inches, and 14 inches?

No,
the triangle would collapse into a straight line.
notice that 5+9=14
So if you start with a base of 14, the other two lines will fall on that base

Impossible, the sum of the 2 shorter sides must not equal the longest side.
