Solution

Knowing the rule that the third side of a triangle must be no longer than the sum of the other two and not shortest of their difference

So the answer is \(B\) and \(C\)

Third Side Rule for Triangles:

If a and b represent two sides of a triangle, then the third side c must lie between their absolute-value difference \((a-b)\) and their sum \((a+b)\).

\((a-b) < c < (a+b)\)

\((a-b) < c < (a+b)\)

IMPORTANT RULE: If two sides of a triangle have lengths A and B, then . . .

DIFFERENCE between A and B < length of third side < SUM of A and B

So, in this case we get: 9 - 5 < third side < 9 + 5

Simplify to get: 4 < third side < 14

Answer: B, C

Cheers,

Brent
