# Relationships of angles and sides

## To order the measures of the sides and

angles of a triangle.
To use triangle inequalities to solve problems.

Theorem

## If one side of a triangle is

longer than another side,
then the angle opposite
the longer side is larger
than the angle opposite
the shorter side.

Theorem

## If one angle of a triangle is

larger than another angle,
then the side opposite the
