Three line segments have the following measures: AB=6, BC= 3, and AC=8. If A,B, and C are distinct points, what conclusions can you draw about points A,B, and C? Draw a diagram and explain your answer.

  1. If AC were 9, the points would lie in a straight line.

    But, since AC is shorter, point B has to rise out of the line, making ABC a triangle.

    We are learning about proofs. We drew lines between noncollinear points. Our table showed 2 points >> 1 line segment, 3 point >> 3 line segments, 4 points >> 6 line segments, 5 points >> 10 line seg, 6 points >> 15 line seg. etc.
