An equilateral triangle ABC of side 5cm is drawn. Is it possible to construct an isosceles triangle PCB on the other side of BC, if the equal sides PC and PB are of length 2.5cm each? Give reasons

Expert Answer:

We can draw a triangle only if the sum of 2 sides is greater than 3rd side
2.5+2.5 = 5, not greater than 5, which forms a line, not a triangle.
