In triangle PQR shown, point S (not shown)is on QR between Q and R. Give one possible value for the length of PS ...Explain your reasoning..
Triangle PQR = 13"
PQ = 6"
QR = 2"
PR = 5"
I need help in figuring this out this triangle with an equation or expression...thank you

The length of PS depends upon where S is located between Q and R. Draw the triangle. PS can have any length between PQ and PR. One possible value would be 5.5"
