  1. Please do not type in capitals it is hard to read and is considered to be shouting.

    If the points are co-linear then there are three possible arrangements

    1. ABC
    2. ACB
    3. BAC

    if AB=7 cm and BC = 17 cm then arrangement 2 is not possible because 7cm is not greater than 13 cm

    In arrangement 1
    A 7 cm B 13 cm C

    so AC= 20 cm

    In arrangement 3

    B 7 cm A 7 ??x?? C and BC = 13 cm

    so AC = 6 cm
