In this lesson, you learned two different sets of conditions for drawing a triangle.

Three Sides Two Angles and a Side


Can these three sides form a triangle? Why is a common, or included, side
needed? Do these angles and side form
a triangle?

The condition that a triangle can be formed is


based on this fact:
The sum of the lengths of two shorter
sides is greater than the length of the The condition that a triangle can be formed
longest side. is based on this fact:
What are the lengths of the shorter sides? The sum of the measures of the angles in
4 and 5 units a plane triangle is 180 degrees.
What is the length of the longest side? What would be the measure of the third
angle in a triangle formed from these parts?
8 units
180 = 53 + 34 + x
Is 4 + 5 > 8? Yes.
x = 180 87
x = 93
A triangle can be formed, with the angles
53 and 93 having the 5-meter side in
common.

Answer the questions about triangle drawings.


1. Can a triangle be formed with three sides of equal length? Explain
using the model above.
