can we sketch a triangle with 1:2:3 side-length ratio????


Intuitively, no. Think about the angles of the triangle.


If the sum of two sides is equal to the length of the last side, then the "triangle" is a straight line.


But the question is, when i draw it with compass, it becomes a triangle- -!!!


I don't think you are doing it right. ONe side 3, the sum of the other two is 3 also. No way a triangle.
