# Triangle Inequality Theorem

Triangle Inequality Theorem In mathematics, here we will study about the Triangle Inequality Theorem. Before solving the theorem first it is necessary to know about the triangle. Triangle is a three line paked shape that is linked end- to- end with each other. In a triangles vertex, base, altitude, median, area, perimeter, interior angles, and exterior angles are present. In mathematical geometry generally we will study seven types of triangle which are given as: Isosceles Triangle Equilateral Triangle Scalene Triangle Right Triangle Obtuse triangle Acute and equiangular Triangle.

A triangle have three sides, out of three sides any one side of a triangle is always smaller than the total sum of all the two other sides is the inequalities of triangle. In the opposite case, if any one side of a triangle is always larger than the total sum of all the two sides than the triangle cannot be found. In the above mention figure, we will understand that the length of two sides P and Q when added then it is less than the length of R because it violets the definition of triangle inequalities, inequalities of triangles theorem. As we know that the triangle is having the same sides, and the angle that is opposite to these sides are also same. In case of a triangle if two sides are not equal than the sum of angles opposite to these sides are also not equal. And the angle which is larger is just opposite the larger side. Other theorem that if two angles in a triangle is not equal then the sum of all the sides opposite these angles are also not equal. As we see that in a triangle three sides are present and one side of a triangle is smaller than the sum of two other sides, if one side of a triangle is larger than the sum of two other sides than the triangle cannot be found, it is the opposite case. In the above given figure (1), we see that the length of two sides ‘P’ and ‘Q’ when added then it is less than the length of ‘R’ because it violates the definition of triangle inequalities. A triangle is having equal sides, and the angle that is different to these sides is also same. If two sides of a triangle are not equal than the sum of angles different to these sides are also not same. The larger angle is just opposite to the larger side. If two angles in a triangle are not equal then the sum of all the sides opposite to the angles is not equal. Then the larger side of a triangle is just opposite to the larger angles of a triangle.

And now in figure (2), p + q > r; q + r > p; r + p > q; If the given triangle follows all three conditions then we can say it satisfies the triangle inequality theorem. Now we will see some formula based on triangle. If we want to find the area of triangle then we will use the formula. The formala to find the area of triangle is given as: Area of triangle = 1 / 2 * b, h; here ‘b’ shows the breadth and ‘h’ shows the slant height of a triangle
