In a triangle ABC, AB = 3 cm, BC = 3.5 cm and CA = 6.5 cm. Is it possible to construct this triangle? Give reason for your answer.

Expert Answer:

The construction of the triangle with the given sides is not possible as the sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side, which is not true in this case.

Here, AB + BC = 6.5

AC = 6.5

So, we see that the required condition is not satisfied.
